Medical Technologist Jobs and Career Outlook

Medical technologists perform essential laboratory testing that is critical to the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. They prepare and analyze body tissues, blood and fluids for doctors and researchers in the diagnosis of diseases. Most medical technologists are baccalaureate level laboratorians that are educated as generalists in clinical laboratory science. Their work includes the use of microscopes, chemicals, computers, and complex laboratory equipment and instruments.  They perform tests in all sections of the laboratory including hematology, bacteriology, chemistry, urinalysis, serology, immunohematology, forensic pathology, immunology, and toxicology. Their work includes collecting blood specimen, inoculating cultures needed to identify bacteria, monitoring the quality control of tests and procedures, and reporting abnormal results to pathologists or higher level medical technologists.
Medical technologists may also perform complex and sophisticated laboratory analysis, evaluate the effects that a patient’s physiological conditions have on the results of the test performed, confirm test results and provide the physician with the necessary data to determine the presence, extent, cause, and treatment of the disease. They must also assume the responsibility for accurate results.

Work Environment:

Medical technologists are employed in hospital laboratories, clinics, public health laboratories, research facilities, technical college and university programs, pharmaceutical companies, industrial laboratories, and the military.

High School Preparation:

Students interested in becoming a medical technologist should take courses such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer skills, English, health occupations/medical professions, physical education, algebra and geometry.

College Requirements:

Medical technologists must complete a four year Bachelor Degree plus additional clinical training. After completing all educational and clinical requirements, medical technology candidates must pass a national certification examination. Students interested in medical technology should contact schools for information on admission and course of study.

Career Outlook:

Employment opportunities for medical technologist are expected to grow by 10 to 20 percent over the next ten years. This rate is equal to the average growth for all occupations in the United States. Although the aging population will increase the need for laboratory tests, advances in technology is expected to make it possible for non-laboratory personnel to conduct the more routine tests.

Salary:
Average Annual Salary: $38,210
Salary Range: $29,100 to $44,300
