Akron - Medical Laboratory Technician

Combining the challenges and rewards of medicine and science

Medical laboratory testing plays a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Working with highly automated, computer-based technology, medical laboratory technicians examine and analyze bodily fluids and cells. Their work includes:

  • Looking for bacteria, parasites, and other microorganisms
  • Analyzing the chemical content of fluids
  • Matching blood for transfusions
  • Testing for drug levels in the blood to determine how a patient is responding to treatment

Medical laboratory technicians usually work under the supervision of medical laboratory technologists or laboratory managers. They may work in several areas of the medical laboratory or specialize in just one.

The information below reflects aggregated data from all of the Herzing University campuses that have students enrolled in the specified program in the specified time period. The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location. Ranges could not be input for tuition and length, therefore tuition and length reported are the highest tuition rates and longest program length to encompass all campuses.
