Job Description for Medical / Clinical Laboratory Technologist

A medical/clinical laboratory technologist is responsible for the analysis and testing of a variety of human bodily fluids including blood and urine. The technologist may be responsible for collecting these substances as well, and should therefore be comfortable working with people of all ages and backgrounds.

The technologist must have a basic understanding of anatomy and medical science. A state certification as a medical technologist is generally required. A bachelor's degree in medical technology and/or microbiology is generally preferred.

Good organizational skills are necessary to correctly label samples and to report correct results. Applicants must be able to efficiently communicate test results to supervisors and/or patients. Working knowledge of laboratory equipment involved in microscopy, titration, urinalysis and phlebotomy are necessary to achieve correct analysis of samples and to maintain a lab's functionality and cleanliness.

Understanding and correct use of sterilization techniques, personal protective equipment (including latex gloves, lab jackets, and/or safety goggles), and the risks associated with handling human bodily fluids are extremely important in order to maintain a healthy environment for workers and patients. Technologists must also adhere to the 1974 Privacy Act in regards to any sample results they have access to in order to protect the privacy of all patients. Their work is performed indoors and is generally done during normal business hours. Technologists should have good vision and feel comfortable examining samples under a microscope, and must be able to identify abnormalities if present. Technologists may need to stand and walk frequently.
