The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Program at the University of New Mexico-Gallup offers students the opportunity to achieve a 71- credit associate of science degree. The MLT program is one of the health-related programs housed in the Health Careers Center.

Although unknown to many, medical laboratory professionals play a very essential role in healthcare. The work they perform are necessary in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease conditions.


Why MLT at UNM-Gallup?

UNM-Gallup MLT Program provides potential students the opportunity to obtain an associate’s degree and find employment locally.

The MLT Program maintains a relatively small class size to ensure closer attention and to enhance instruction and learning especially in laboratory activities.

Students and graduates benefit most from the NAACLS-accredited MLT Program. Students receive instruction that meet national standards. All instructors are nationally approved. Graduates can transition smoothly to a Bachelor’s Program in the US, and are eligible to take the ASCP Board of Certification exam.

Now is the best time to pursue a career in the medical laboratory profession. A high percentage of laboratorians in the US are retiring; thus, the need for new MLTs is significantly increasing.
