The first two semesters of the program may be taken at NIACC and the completion of the program is taken at Hawkeye Community College, Waterloo, Iowa. The final semesters of the program are provided in the clinical setting, which may occur in a location of the student’s choice. This placement, however, is dependent on a space available basis in the agency of choice. Upon successful completion of the Medical Laboratory Technician curriculum, the student is awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree by Hawkeye Community College and is then prepared to work in hospital laboratories, clinics, physicians’ offices, public health agencies, research institutions, and the Armed Forces. The program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.
