Behind the scenes, medical laboratory techs are responsible for analyzing blood, tissue and other biological samples for disease and abnormalities. At Pima, prepare for a career in medical laboratory technology through classroom study and supervised clinical experience. 

100% of students who graduated from PCC’s MLT program were hired as an MLT or in a related field, or continued their education.

Limited Admissions Program: Depending on available spots, students may be placed on a waiting list before starting the program. The MLT program will put students in the application queue according to the date on their MLT application.
