Everything in the Medical Laboratory program at Ivy Tech is very hands-on. All courses consist of both a lecture component and a lab component, and labs are set up as true to real life lab as possible. Students will work on microscopes, chemistry analyzers, do microbiology testing, etc. just like in a real lab. In addition, the clinical experience gives them a semester of learning in a real hospital lab.

The Medical Laboratory Technology program is a selective admission program. When you apply to the College, you will be accepted into Healthcare Support with a concentration in Medical Laboratory Technology while you complete the prerequisite requirements. The Medical Laboratory Technology program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process. Contact your campus of interest below for more details.

Students who are admitted to the program will be required to pay for and submit to a criminal background check, drug testing and physical exam.  The details and process will be provided at an orientation.  Please contact the program faculty for more detailed information.
