Medical Laboratory Technologists (MLT)
Working in the highly automated, high tech world of laboratories, MLT’s conduct tests on human specimens and interpret test results. Their analyses provide doctors and their patients with critical diagnostic information to help them in their decision making.
MLT’s are graduates of accredited training programs at colleges or university and are certified by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS). Some also hold undergraduate science degrees. CSMLS certifies medical laboratory technologists in General Medical Laboratory Technology, Diagnostic Cytology and Clinical Genetics.

MLT’s are governed by the Regulated Health Professions Act and by their professional body, the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO).
