About the Program

John Wood Community College, in cooperation with Blessing Hospital, offers the Medical Laboratory Technology AAS degree. Enrollment is limited. Students accepted into the Blessing School of Medical Laboratory Technicians complete 16 credit hours of science specialty courses and 17 credit hours of general education courses at JWCC. Upon successful completion of requirements of the Blessing School of Medical Laboratory Technicians, 32 credit hours will be given in transfer to complete degree requirements.

Medical laboratory technicians must be accurate, dedicated, skilled and self-motivated. They are problem solvers, like challenge and responsibility, and are accurate, reliable, and able to work well under pressure. Students should have a solid foundation in high school sciences–biology, chemistry, math and computer science.
