These professionals are a critical component of a well-functioning healthcare facility. They work under the supervision of physicians, lab managers or lab technologists to conduct lab tests on specimens. The work they do behind-the-scenes helps doctors detect diseases or illnesses and determine treatment options.
Becoming a medical laboratory technician (MLT) is one of those opportunities. The bright future of this field is indicated by the estimated 11% increase in employment for medical lab technicians through 2028, according to the Bureau of

- Preparing solutions or reagents to be combined with samples
- Collecting blood, tissue or other samples from patients
