What is MLT?
The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program prepares students to work as medical laboratory technicians in clinical laboratories, industry and biotechnology. The MLT curriculum combines classroom lectures, student laboratories and clinical training to foster the analytical and problem solving skills required in this profession.
Graduates who successfully complete the MLT program are eligible to sit for national certification exams offered by American Society for Clinical Pathology and the American Association of Bioanalysts (AAB).
The De Anza College MLT Program is currently accredited through 2029 by the National
Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS), which can be contacted at 5600 N. River Rd., Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018-5119
or 773.714.8880. It is approved by the Laboratory Field Services unit of the California Department of Health Services until Dec. 1, 2022.
Students will be required to provide their own gowns, gloves, goggles (optional) and extra slides (if needed) for laboratory courses. These can be purchased from the book store. They can be purchased individually or a package. Please check the bookstore for current pricing.
