Responsible for performing laboratory tests efficiently and accurately for high quality patient care, medical laboratory technicians (MLTs) are the "CSIs" of healthcare. They're on the front lines of the battle against genetic abnormalities, parasites, malignancies and bacteria, helping to analyze slides and specimens of human blood, tissue and other cells.

Medical laboratory technicians search for basic clues to the absence, presence, extent and causes of disease so we all can live fuller, healthier lives. It's a rewarding career worthy of recognition.

A preeminent national healthcare education and continuing professional development provider, Medtech College is leading the celebration of these highly trained professionals during National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 22-26.

Medtech College campuses are collaborating to recognize the significant contributions of medical laboratory professionals everywhere, and to honor each campus' medical lab technician students and staff for their commitment to excelling in this critical healthcare arena. Medical Laboratory Professionals Week gubernatorial or mayoral proclamations will be presented to MLT students during special campus events and Medtech College MLT graduates will return to talk with current students about their on-the-job experiences.

"The Medical Lab Technician - Associate of Science Degree program is an important offering at our campuses and we wanted to assume a leading role in recognizing and celebrating our MLT students and graduates for their significant accomplishments," said President and CEO John L. Hopkins . "Medical Lab Technicians are, and will be, invaluable, members of our patient healthcare teams for years to come."

A highly rewarding career, medical laboratory technician also offers strong growth potential. The field is spotlighted in the Top 40 Best Jobs of 2013 by U.S. News & World Report and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2012-13 Edition, forecasts continued strength among medical laboratory technicians and technologists through 2020, with annual growth of 13-15 percent.

Opportunities for medical laboratory technicians likely will continue to grow as healthcare technology advances, expanded healthcare becomes more readily available to an additional 20 million Americans under Obamacare, and an expanding senior population leads to an increased need for health professionals.
