About the Program

Moraine Park’s Medical Laboratory Technician program prepares students for entry-level laboratory work performing tests on tissue, blood and other body fluids to help doctors diagnose illnesses, make medical decisions and plan treatment options.

In the Medical Lab Technician program, students gain hands-on experience performing routine clinical lab tests, such as hematology (blood tests), clinical chemistry (often used to determine a patient’s general health), microbiology (used to identify infections), coagulation, molecular and other diagnostic techniques.

The program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS, 5600 N. River Rd., Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018; Phone: 773-714-8880). Upon graduation, students are eligible to sit for the National Board of Certification Exam through the ASCP.

What You’ll Learn

Through a combination of hands-on coursework and a clinical site placement, medical lab technician students learn laboratory safety, practice collecting and processing biological specimens, monitor and evaluate quality control in the laboratory, correlate lab tests to a diagnosis of a condition or disease, and more.
