Medical Technologist School in Vermont

The State of Vermont’s Department of Health and Division of Occupational and Professional Licensure does not issue licenses for medical technologists. However, many healthcare facilities in Vermont do require or strongly recommend that potential applicants achieve certification by a national credentialing agency, such as American Medical Technologists (AMT) or the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).

A medical technologist in Vermont must be able to perform and interpret both standard and complex tests while implementing quality assurance protocols to ensure results are accurate and can be relied upon. The certifying examination tests a candidate’s competencies in the areas of body fluids, blood bank, chemistry, hematology, immunology and microbiology. A candidate must be able to apply proper theory and principles, select appropriate controls, courses of action, instruments and quality control procedures. Results must be assessed, validated, evaluated and calculated accurately.

Students in Vermont must have a good grasp of chemistry, since it may comprise approximately 21 percent of the examination. Areas that potentially could be covered as part of the chemistry portion may be carbohydrates, acid base and electrolytes; proteins and other nitrogen-containing compounds; enzymes, lipids and lipoproteins; as well as special chemistry, such as endocrinology and tumor markers, TDM and toxicology.  Microbiology is another area that may take up approximately 20 percent of the questions. Topics could include general microbiology, aerobic gram-positive cocci, gram-negative bacilli, gram-negative cocci, gram-positive bacilli and anaerobes, fungi, such as yeast, dermatophytes, and dermatiaceous molds, mycobacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, and parasites.
