Medical technologists are in high demand
They test samples of blood and body fluids to determine whether a disease is present, or if someone is responding to treatment. If you want to someday work in a hospital laboratory — or clinic, commercial lab, scientific supply company, or research laboratory — this is the path for you. Other areas could include cytogenics, cytotechnology, and histology.
