More Medical Laboratory Technology Featured Videos WelcomeWelcome to SCC's Medical Laboratory Technology program. As a student, you will gain skills to provide a key role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease.You're a Good Fit for this program because . . . OverviewMedical laboratory technicians perform general tests in all areas of the clinical laboratory: immunohematology (blood banking), chemistry, hematology, immunology and microbiology. An MLT performs tests that aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Accuracy for a technician is absolutely essential; dedication and self-motivation also are critical attributes for this skilled science. The program offers classroom, laboratory and clinical instruction for traditional classes. Program graduates attain employment in a variety of settings such as hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, private and public health institutions, pharmaceutical laboratories, and animal clinics. Graduates work in small and large facilities throughout Nebraska and neighboring states. Many continue their education and earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical (Clinical) Laboratory Science. The program is designed to be completed in 24 months (8 quarters). Students may also choose a three-year option to complete the program. Program graduates are eligible to take the national certification examination offered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification. Upon completion, a graduate also may transfer up to 60 semester hours of credit to the University of Nebraska Medical Center Clinical Laboratory Science Program. SCC's program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences, 5600 N. River Road, Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018, 773-714-8880, www.naacls.org.MissionThe mission of the Medical Laboratory Technology program is to prepare students to become competent Medical Laboratory Technicians.Employment OutlookAccording to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, rapid job growth and excellent job opportunities are expected. Employment of clinical laboratory workers is expected to grow 14 percent between now and 2016, faster than the average for all occupations. Most jobs will continue to be in hospitals, but employment will grow faster in other settings. Job opportunities are expected to be excellent. SCC graduates report an average starting salary of $17.45 per hour, with a high salary of $20 per hour.Starting TermsSummer Quarter.Medical Laboratory Technology-AASCurriculumPROGRAM CLASSESTake the following minimum grade of C+ for all MEDT classes:BIOS-1010 General BiologyMEDT-1100 Procedures in PhlebotomyMEDT-1101 Medical Laboratory ProceduresMEDT-1121 Analytical Chem for Tech IMEDT-1131 Analytical Chem I LabMEDT-1201 Medical Laboratory MeasurementMEDT-1213 Medical Microbiology IMEDT-1332 Hematology IMEDT-1413 Medical Microbiology IIIMEDT-1424 Survey of ChemistryMEDT-1425 Survey of Chemistry LabMEDT-1313 Medical Microbiology IIMEDT-1432 Hematology IIMEDT-2125 Instrumental Analytical ChemMEDT-2135 Instrumental Anal Chem LabMEDT-2512 UrinalysisMEDT-2532 Immunohematology IMEDT-2552 Med Lab Chemistry IMEDT-2561 ImmunologyMEDT-2582 Immunology/Hemostasis LabMEDT-2681 Preclinical Orientation IMEDT-2632 Immunohematology IIMEDT-2652 Med Lab Chemistry IIMEDT-2681 Preclinical Orientation IMEDT-2690 Clinical Education IMEDT-2701 Clinical Education IIMEDT-2702 Seminar IMEDT-2703 Preclinical Orientation IIMEDT-2801 Clinical Education IIIMEDT-2802 Seminar IIGENERAL ED REQUIREMENTSTAKE ENGL-1010;ENGL-1010 Composition ITake MATH-1150 or higherMATH-1150 College AlgebraMATH-1180 Elementary StatisticsMATH-1400 Applied CalculusMATH-1600 Calc & Analytic Geometry IMATH-2030 Contemporary MathematicsMATH-1200 TrigonometryMATH-1300 PrecalculusTake SPCH-1090 or SPCH-1110 or SPCH-2810SPCH-1090 Fund of Human CommunicationsSPCH-1110 Public SpeakingSPCH-2810 Business & Professional CommunTake 4.5 social science electiveANTH-1020 Intro to Cultural AnthANTH-1120 General AnthropologyECON-1200 Personal FinanceECON-2110 MacroeconomicsECON-2120 MicroeconomicsGEOG-1420 World Regional GeographyHIST-1000 Western Tradition IHIST-1010 Western Tradition IIHIST-1820 Survey of Asian HistoryHIST-2010 Amer Hist I (Early America)HIST-2020 Amer Hist II (Late America)HIST-2100 Survey World Hist to 1500 CEHIST-2110 World History since 1500 CEHIST-2960 Survey of African American HisPOLS-1000 American GovernmentPOLS-1040 Comparative PoliticsPOLS-1600 Introduction to International RelationsPSYC-1250 Interpersonal RelationsPSYC-1810 Introduction to PsychologySOCI-1010 Introduction to SociologySOCI-1020 Diversity in SocietyPOLS-1080 Intro to Political ScienceSOCI-2150 Issues of Unity and DiversityTAKE BSAD-1010 OR INFO-1010;BSAD-1010 Microsoft Applications IINFO-1010 Computer LiteracyTake BIOS-2130BIOS-2130 Human PhysiologyRequirementsProgram Requirements & Student ResponsibilitiesMinimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 required to graduate from program.A current American Heart Association Healthcare Provider CPR card.
