Why an Associate of Science Degree in Medical Laboratory Technology?
A degree in Medical Laboratory Technology is a great fit for someone who is passionate about health care, but prefers to be a “hidden hero”, working behind the scenes in a laboratory rather than in direct patient care. Successful graduates are interested in being an integral part of the health care team, working in hospital laboratories or clinical lab settings, such as blood and organ banks.

I really liked the [AS in Medical Laboratory Technology] program at Argosy University. The faculty is very helpful and really care about their students. My instructors were always available to help me whenever I had questions. If you didn't understand something, you could go to open lab for one-on-one assistance from instructors. I am excited to start my career. I love that I will be helping people and working with my hands. I also like the idea of working in a hospital or clinic.
