MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS
Medical laboratory technologists may function behind the scenes, but at Amarillo College they learn that the work they do is exciting, varied and vital to the quality of a patient's healthcare. Students in the program at AC participate in practicums in clinical laboratories, not only within the city of Amarillo but in other towns and cities throughout the Texas Panhandle and Eastern New Mexico. They emerge from the program well-prepared to meet the challenges of a profession that is vital to healthcare everywhere.
Professional medical laboratory technologists are trained to conduct lab tests ordered by doctors and other healthcare providers, working with human bodily fluids and tissue samples to determine diagnoses and identify abnormalities. They will work with microscopes, computers, and other automated laboratory machines, keeping detailed records of the data. About half of all medical laboratory technologists are employed in hospitals. Others work in doctors’ offices or diagnostic laboratories.
