Profil


Centennial College's Medical Laboratory Technician program will immerse you in the exciting and rewarding world of the medical laboratory, which offers a unique combination of technical employment and the satisfaction of working with a diverse client population.

The program's curriculum is based on the national (CSMLS) and provincial (MLPAO) standards of practice for entry-level medical laboratory assistants/technicians (MLA/T). As such, it will focus on ensuring you become proficient in blood sample collection, performing ECGs, using laboratory equipment and medical terminology. Along the way, you'll also develop the professional attitude and demeanour for close patient contact as excellent communication and good interpersonal skills are essential.

The theoretical and practical portions of this Centennial College program will be completed within a year. The third and final semester will be a clinical internship field placement that will offer real-world experience. The compressed delivery format makes the Medical Laboratory Technician program an ideal choice if you wish to quickly enter the workforce.

An MLA/T works under the direction of a medical laboratory technologist and assists in various clinical laboratory procedures. His or her duties include specimen collection, performing ECGs, positioning Holter monitors and processing specimens. With the MLA/T's role expanding, there are opportunities for employment in clinics, private laboratories and hospital laboratories as well as in government, research and veterinary laboratories.

Please note:

  • Applicants must demonstrate language proficiency for admission.
  • A current criminal background check, including a vulnerable section screening, will be required prior to field placement.
  • Your health must be such that you can successfully cope with the program of instruction and the clinical placement experience and meet the health requirements of clinical placement settings.
  • Clinical placement may be located outside of Toronto.
