Question by chicky: How do you get a job as a medical lab technician?
I know they have specific degrees and certifications for it. What if you have a four year degree in general biology, with no certification or work experience in a lab? Will some places train on the job? Is there a quick way to be a certified lab technician?

    Halothere when you decide to join any job group, first of all you need to know the requirement and scope of your function as i:e Lab Technician. First thing first ….ok, beside having a degree in biology, you must olso have at least a certified Diploma or a degree in Medical Lab Technology.With this qualification you can go for it. You seldom learn on the job in this kind of expertist.

    According to the US Dept of Labor:

    First if you’re talking about a Clinical Lab Tech:
    **Clinical laboratory technologists usually have a bachelor’s degree with a major in medical technology or in one of the life sciences (like biology); clinical laboratory technicians generally need either an associate degree or a certificate.
    *Job opportunities are expected to be excellent.
    *Faster than average employment growth is expected as the volume of laboratory tests continues to increase with both population growth and the development of new types of tests.
    *Employers like certs but they vary by state. Information on certification is available from:

    American Society for Clinical Pathology, 2100 West Harrison St., Chicago, IL 60612. Internet:

    Otherwise, if you’re talking about a Medical Lab Tech:
    *Around 3 out of 5 salaried jobs were in medical equipment and supply manufacturing laboratories, which usually are small, privately owned businesses with fewer than 5 employees.
    *Most medical, dental, and ophthalmic laboratory technicians learn their craft on the job; however, many employers prefer to hire those with formal training in a related field.
    *Slower-than-average employment growth is expected for dental and ophthalmic laboratory technicians, while *average* employment growth is expected for medical appliance technicians.
    *Job opportunities should be favorable as employers have difficulty filling trainee positions.

    Good Luck!
