I'll be attending university this fall and I'm planning on becoming a medical technologist/clinical laboratory scientist. I've been doing my research a little and I know that I need to take a state and national exam and I'm actually supposed to major in clinical-laboratory science but my university doesn't offer that.
If you have any other extra information (such as the working conditions, how flexible the hours are, what they do) please clue me in.
Thank you for your help
I am thinking about a career in medical technology. So far according to my research i know that they are also called clinical laboratory technologists and that they perform tests like on body fluids. Do they have to deal like with feces and other gross body related stuff? LIke something nasty?
What do clinical laboratory scientists/medical technologists wear to work? (I know it may be a silly question, but a girl's gotta know!) Are you a c.l. scientist? Do you like your job? Any tips for a CLS major? Thanks!
What's your job like? Do you like it? Is the pay good? Is it a solitary environment? Does it require a lot of interaction with other technicians? How long does it take to become a MCLT?
I'm currently working on my B.S. in clinical laboratory science. I like to work in a lab and run tests and dislike working with the general public. Should I change my major to something else? How is the pay? the hours?
I'm majoring in clinical laboratory science, sometimes correlated to medical technology. What kind of work will I be doing with this degree. What all CAN I do?
I want to have a career in the medical field but id like something that is relatively interesting. i was thinking about being a clinical laboratory technologist but id like to explore my options before i settle on one and start college. id prefer to work in a hospital and im not bothered by blood and guts if thats any help. thanks :)
I am a biochemstry major at a big 10 university and i was wondering which job is better, clinical laboratory scientist/medical technilogist or a biology/biochemstry degree. I don't think i will have good enough gpa to continue to medical school or grad school. Is it hard finding job when you are only holding a biochemstry degree? Is it easier to find jobs with a clinical laboratory degree? which pays better? Which one is more in demand? Can someone help me answer this simple questions?
I was wondering which bachelors degree I should go for, clinical laboratory scientist/medical technologist or a biochemistry degree. Is it hard finding job when you only have a biochemistry degree? Which pays better?
My girlfriend just finished her 4 years of college and graduated with a B.S Degree in Microbiology. She was told that once she was out of college, she would be able to work at any hospital, or independent clinic. She has tried to apply to several medical technologist jobs, but she keeps getting turned down as they require 2-4 years of experience. She is getting extremely frustrated, and she is unsure of what to do at this point. My question to everyone is, how does she get this experience if no one will hire her?
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
I am currently considering going into this field and I was wondering if there are any clinical laboratory scientists out there to answer some of my questions.
First, what does the future hold for clinical laboratory scientists?
Will CLS be in demand in the next 20 years?
For those who are currently Clinical Laboratory Scientists, do you regret going into this field?
What are the pros and cons in working as a CLS?
I’ve heard you can specialize in a much more specific portion of CLS like hematology, microbiology, cytology, etc.. If so what is the most sought after specialty by companies/hospitals?
What was your starting salary?
And what does your salary look like now after x months/years of experience?
Can a current clinical laboratory scientist please answer these questions for me? I’d be eternally grateful if you could take the time to answer these questions.
I just graduated with my bachelors degree in biology and now im looking for a job. I see that clinical laboratory scientist make good money and i am also interested in the duties that they do. I want to move to Dallas, Texas and become one but i have no idea what steps to take next to be on my way to becoming one. Please help
I know that they may work under a pathologist as their boss, but I mean the job on a professional level.
Are they considered independent professionals, or are they more like nurses or PA's, where they are usually under a doctor's command?
I want to become a Medical Scientist, but there are so many similiar terms that I am confused. Could you please clear this up for me?
I need to go to school for something ASAP because I can't find full time work as a PSW.
Do medical laboratory assistants work full time or more likely to find only part time?
Any info on the career would be a huge huge help. Please only answer you have know someone direct or have personal experience.
What does each do in a typical day?
I'm curious if anyone know real salary examples for Medical Technologists, Clinical Lab Scientists II, Medical Laboratory Scientists II, Clinical Microbiologists, or related fields. Also, if those salaries are government-based or regular. (Generally looking for what hospitals in the area pay, but also research laboratories or reference laboratories would also work).
Thanks so much!
I want to become a medical lab technician and work in a clinic but I dont know what schooling I need. Do I need to major in chemistry? Is there some kind of school I can go to without having to go to a chemistry? I live in denver is there any near by?
I'm looking into this career so any information you have on it would be awesome!!
Such as if how much schooling you need, what you do everyday, pay, environment, and job growth.
Thanks so much! =)
