Medical Laboratory Technology graduates

Mississippi Delta Community College (MDCC) held its Health Science Pinning and Graduation Ceremony Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in the J. T. Hall Coliseum on the Moorhead Campus. The ceremony included graduates from the Associate Degree Nursing Program, the Dental Hygiene Program, the Medical Laboratory Technology Program and the Radiologic Technology Program.

Five individuals completed the Medical Laboratory Technology Program. In the laboratory, a highly skilled team of pathologists and medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians (MLT) and specialists work together to solve the mysteries, put the puzzles together, and answer the critical questions of medicine. Seventy to eighty percent of medical decisions made by physicians are based on laboratory findings. In fact, the practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the laboratory. Every day, new advances in genetic testing, biomarkers, and PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology are creating more challenges and job opportunities for clinical laboratory science professionals. It is a fast-growing field, and there will be great demand for clinical laboratory professionals in the future. Clinical laboratory professionals are the researchers, the investigators, and some say the real heroes of medicine.
