Medical Laboratory Technician Program

Blue Mountain Community College and Wenatchee Valley College have partnered to bring the Medical Laboratory Technician program to Eastern Oregon. Many opportunities await those choosing careers in medicine and science. One of the most rewarding is medical laboratory technology. As members of the medical team, technicians work side by side with medical technologists and pathologists and have relatively less contact with patients. Medical laboratory technicians (MLTs) perform a great variety of scientific laboratory procedures, utilizing automated computerized instrumentation, all of which aid in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
