Meeting the Demand for Lab Skills
The demand is there for you if you're interested in medical lab sciences and being part of a health care team. Careers are waiting for:
- highly qualified research laboratory personnel--and more of them
- senior and supervisory technologists in large hospitals, government, and private laboratories
- teaching positions in various schools of medical laboratory technology.
You can complete a pre-professional year of study at Lakeland College, followed by three years in the Division of Medical Laboratory Science of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the U of A. You'll spend one year in practical hospital training, rotating through public and private laboratories.
