Where Medical Mysteries are Solved: The Laboratory

The MLT Program of Maine was created as a collaborative effort between the University of Maine at Presque Isle and the University of Maine at Augusta in cooperation with hospitals across the state that serve as clinical affiliates.

There is a strong need for medical laboratory technicians as approximately 40% of the current laboratory workforce is within five to ten years of retirement. You will be prepared to ensure ongoing delivery of quality healthcare to communities across the State of Maine.

The program’s vision is “Providing Quality MLT Education to Communities Across the State of Maine and beyond.” All MLT lecture courses are available via videoconferencing at locations statewide. Periodic intensive laboratories are held at the Presque Isle or Augusta campuses. In the final semester of the program, students gain hands-on experience while participating in a supervised clinical practicum at an affiliated hospital laboratory.
