The Casper College Medical Lab Technician Program has been awarded continuing accreditation for seven years by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.
According to Gerald A. Phipps, president of the NAACLS Board of Directors, the accreditation for the MLT program will continue until October 31, 2019. The NAACLS provides accreditation and approval of educational programs in the clinical laboratory sciences and related health professions.
The MLT program at Casper College is the only one in the state of Wyoming and offers an associate’s degree in medical laboratory technician or a phlebotomy technician training certificate.
“Students enrolled in the MLT program will participate in clinical experiences in a variety of agencies,” said Audrey Hentzen, program director. Because the MLT program utilizes a variety of agencies throughout the state, many classes are offered online.
In addition to awarding the MLT program at Casper College continuing accreditation, the NAACLS also recognized clinical affiliates of the program: Converse County Memorial Hospital, Douglas; Campbell County Memorial Hospital, Gillette; Carbon County Memorial Hospital, Rawlins; Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, Cheyenne; Hot Springs Memorial Hospital, Thermopolis; LabCorp, Casper; Mountain View Regional Hospital, Casper; Sheridan Memorial Hospital, Sheridan; Star Valley Medical Center, Afton; and Wyoming Medical Center, Casper.
