The Medical Technologist has the best of both worlds with the challenges and rewards of medicine and science.
The Medical Technologist performs a full range of laboratory tests-from simple pre-marital blood tests, to more complex tests to uncover diseases such as AIDS, diabetes, and cancer. The Medical Technologist is also responsible for confirming the accuracy of test results and reporting laboratory findings to the pathologist and other doctors.
Medical Technologists work quickly and carefully. They hold life and death in their hands, because the information they give to the doctor influences the medical treatment a patient receives.
In their search for data on a patient’s health, Medical Technologists do much more than examine specimens through a microscope. They operate complex electronic equipment, computers, and precision instruments.
Medical Technologists are self-sufficient, precise and thorough. They are trouble-shooters who not only report accurate results, but also know when results are incorrect and need to be rechecked.
Medical Technologists work in five major areas of the laboratory: Blood banking, Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology and Microbiology.
