A number of colleges and universities offer online training programs for med techs that result in certificates, associate's and bachelor's degrees in medical or clinical laboratory science, medical laboratory technology or a related discipline. Due to the intensive, hands-on nature of the field, these programs are typically offered in hybrid format, which combines online didactic coursework and practical, in-person lab experiences. Students should look for programs that are fully accredited for certification purposes. Some programs will require students to be or have been employed in a medical lab. Bachelor's programs in this field will often require students to have already earned an associate's degree accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
Hi, my name is Angel “Nicole” Altman. I’ve worked in almost every aspect of nursing over the past 18+yrs starting as a Nurse’s aide right out of high school in 1993 and then going on to complete the Licensed Practical Nurse Program in 1997. I’ve found working in a medical office to be the most rewarding. And that is where I have chosen to hang my hat. I enjoy getting to know my patients, forming a relationship, and being able to follow them through their healthcare journey. I strive to make sure my patients get the information they need to help them understand their condition. I’m always on the hunt for new information about my own health, and I like to be able to assist others in that same endeavor. I’ll be the one discussing your testing instructions, answering your emails and calls, drawing blood, and helping you with supplements. I look forward to meeting you and assisting on your journey!
