The mission of Stanly Community College’s Medical Laboratory Technology program is
to train laboratory professionals who will make a positive impact in healthcare through
leadership that will assure excellence in the practice of laboratory medicine.
The Medical Laboratory Technology curriculum prepares individuals to perform clinical
laboratory procedures in chemistry, hematology, microbiology, and Immunohematology
that may be used in the maintenance of health and diagnosis/treatment of disease.
Course work emphasizes mathematical and scientific concepts related to specimen collection,
laboratory testing and procedures, quality assurance and reporting/recording and interpreting
findings involving tissues, blood, and body fluids.
Students who successfully complete the program are eligible to take the national certification
examination administered by the Board of Registry of American Society for Clinical
Pathology and become a certified Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) (ASCP). With
additional education and/or technical experience, graduates may also advance in the
field to become a technologist, research specialist, manager, or educator. The Medical
Laboratory/Clinical Laboratory Science field allows students to advance to a BS in
Laboratory Science, a Master’s degree in Molecular Diagnostics, and a doctorate degree
as a DCLS (Doctorate in Clinical Laboratory Science).
Employment opportunities for graduates include laboratories in hospitals, medical
offices, industry, and research facilities.
