This is a selective program. View Selective Programs Application Instructions
For this program, students must earn a numerical grade of 77 or higher in all Biology, Chemistry, and Medical Laboratory Technician courses. Either failure to meet clinical objectives or failure to obtain a numerical course grade of 77 or better constitutes failure in that course. Students may apply for readmission to the program.
All Medical Laboratory Technician students are required to: undergo a physical examination, complete the necessary immunization forms, including the three (3) dose Hepatitis B immunization series; carry malpractice and health insurance; and undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check.
After all prerequisites are completed, students must apply through Admissions and Enrollment Services.
This program prepares students through lectures, laboratory activities and hospital-based clinical experience to become Medical Laboratory Technicians. Students will acquire the skills and knowledge essential to working in a medical laboratory and performing tests that aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and the maintenance of health.
As a prerequisite for a clinical placement in the Medical Laboratory Technician program, all students must undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check. These checks are required due to potential unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly during a clinical experience. Students found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible for clinical placement. The College is authorized by the Commonwealth’s Department of Criminal Justice Information Services, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 167-178B, to access CORI records. Sex Offender checks shall be performed pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 178C-178P.
For more information regarding the College’s CORI/SORI check process, please contact the College CORI/SORI Officer at 617-228-2193.
Graduates of this program are eligible to take the CLT/MLT certification exam administered by the American Society of Clinical Pathology. Graduates are then qualified for employment in hospitals, clinics and health maintenance organizations.
The Program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS), 5600 North River Rd. Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018, telephone 773-714-8880. Graduates of the Program are eligible to take national certification exams.
