The MLT Program of Maine

The MLT Program of Maine was created as a collaborative effort between the University of Maine at Presque Isle and the University of Maine at Augusta in cooperation with hospitals across the state that serve as clinical affiliates.  Medical Laboratory Technology is a two-year program leading to an Associate of Science in MLT, awarded by the home campus.

The program’s vision is “Providing Quality MLT Education to Communities Across the State of Maine.”   All MLT lecture courses are available via videoconferencing at locations statewide.  Periodic intensive laboratories will be held at Presque Isle or Augusta locations.   The final semester is a 20-week clinical practicum scheduled at an affiliated hospital laboratory.

There is a strong need for medical laboratory technicians as approximately 40% of the current laboratory workforce is within five to ten years of retirement.  We need to continually prepare and graduate the best technicians to ensure ongoing delivery of quality healthcare to communities across the State of Maine.

The MLT Program of Maine includes Canadian alumni that have trained in the United States and have become certified through the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS).

Upon completion, graduates are eligible to take the certification exam administered by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
