Medical Technologist School in Utah


The State of Utah’s Division of Occupational and Professional Licensure does not issue medical technologist certification or licenses. However, the majority of employers do require that medical and clinical laboratory technologists achieve certification by passing an examination given by a professional organization, such as the American Medical Technologists (AMT) examination, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) examination, or the American Association of Bioanalysts Board of Registry (AAB) examination.

A course of study for medical technologists at a college or university includes biology, cell biology, human physiology and anatomy, genetics, chemistry, organic chemistry, biological chemistry, algebra and statistics.

Medical technologists can attain certification in a number of areas, such as chemistry, blood banking, cytogenetics, cytotechnologist, hematology, histotechnologist, medical laboratory scientist, microbiology or molecular biology. The examination process is extensive and requires a breadth of knowledge.

The medical technologist must be able to perform a full range of chemical, microbiologic, immunologic, hematologic and immunohematologic procedures in a laboratory. Some of the topics that the examination typically covers may be crossmatching and special testing that includes Rosette and Kleihauer-Betke, pre-warm technique and DAT; blood donor testing; transfusion therapy, including RhlG, cryoprecipitated AHF and FFP; testing of body fluids, such as amniotic, gastric, sweat, semen and feces, and urinalysis and microscopic inspection of casts, crystals and contaminants.
