A medical lab technician, also known as a medical technician or a med tech, assists with diagnosing patients by performing tests and analyzing samples in a laboratory setting. Their main job is to determine if the samples have any abnormalities and ensure the abnormalities are documented.
Some of the responsibilities of a medical technician include:
To become a medical technician and be able to perform these duties, you must first receive an associate or bachelor's degree in a related field. Then you can begin gaining on-the-job training and experience. Most healthcare facilities also require you to have a medical technician certification. In order to become certified, you can enroll in the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) six certification courses to make you eligible to take the exam for certification.
