Associate of Applied Science - Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT)

The Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) MLT Program curriculum includes on-campus or virtual classroom instruction, on-campus laboratory instruction, and an off-campus clinical rotation component encompassing the areas of Hematology and Coagulation, Clinical Microbiology, Parasitology, Mycology and Virology, Immunohematology, Clinical Chemistry and Urinalysis, Immunology and Phlebotomy.

The classroom lecture component is taught by MACC and Three Rivers College faculty and is broadcast to the MLT students located at the Mineral Area College, MACC, North Central Missouri College, Three Rivers College, and State Fair Community College campuses using interactive television (ITV) or online learning management system technology.

In addition, all MLT students will be required to travel to the MACC Mexico Campus at designated times during the fall, spring and summer semesters to participate in “centralized lab” sessions that bring the students from all campuses together for group lab activities and testing. Any required lodging will be at the student’s expense.

 (See admission information below the academic map.)

Additional Graduation Requirement
Missouri law, included in Senate Bill 807, requires every college student pursuing an associate’s or bachelor's degree at a public institution to pass the Missouri Higher Education Civics Achievement Examination with at least a 70 percent to graduate. The rule will apply to the incoming class of first-time college students in the fall of 2019 and all students thereafter.

This academic map is not a contract, either expressed or implied, between MACC and the student, but represents a flexible program of the current curriculum which may be altered from time to time to meet the academic objectives of the college. MACC specifically reserves the right to modify, delete, or add to any academic map at any time within the student’s period of study at the college.
