To meet the need for medical laboratory technicians in the college’s service area, State Fair Community has collaborated with the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) to offer an Associate of Applied Science degree in Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) starting in August. Application deadline is June 1.
MLTs provide laboratory services in many different health care settings such as hospitals, clinics and physician offices. This career path is a good choice for people who are detail and task-oriented and curious about tissues, cells and medical testing.
The program includes on-campus or virtual classroom instruction, laboratory hands-on skills instruction on scheduled dates throughout the semester at Moberly Area Community College, and an off-campus clinical rotation component. Admission into the program is competitive and limited.
The MHPC MLT program is nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Upon completion, graduates are eligible to take the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) exam. Those who pass the exam are recognized nationally as Medical Laboratory Technicians.
