BCC’S MLT Program Makes the Grade
In a major milestone, the BCC Medical Lab Technician (MLT) Associate in Applied Science program has received an initial five-year accreditation from the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
NAACLS accreditation is not only a valuable endorsement of the quality of our program, it is also of great practical importance to our MLT students. For example, it makes graduates eligible for the certification required for employment as a medical lab technician in some states outside New York.
This accreditation was the result of the efforts of many over a long period of time. In particular, it is due to the exceptional leadership of the program director, Prof. Diane Price-Banks, and the program faculty, Prof. Allan Gilman and Dr. Latchman Somenarain.
