Travel Medical Technologist Jobs

Medical technicians are allied health professionals who specialize in analyzing specimens and performing tests on patients of all ages, then report the results as part of the diagnostic process. They generally work under the supervision of medical technologists or laboratory supervisors and play an integral role in the healthcare system behind the scenes. Entering the workforce can be accomplished relatively quickly because most medical technician programs only take about two years to complete. Medical technicians are usually in high demand due to shortages of skilled laboratory professionals and increased testing needs.

What does a medical tech do?

Medical technicians assist lab technologists by performing tests for doctors and other healthcare professionals as part of their medical diagnoses. They may analyze blood or other bodily fluids and/or tissue samples, looking for the presence of diseases, bacteria, viruses, or even cancer cells. Some of their daily activities may include:

  • Accepting specimens from healthcare workers 

  • Collecting specimens directly from patients

  • Preparing specimens for analysis

  • Cataloging samples for testing while following privacy and safety regulations

  • Testing/analyzing samples using various diagnostic procedures and machinery

  • Identifying any cell abnormalities

  • Collaborating with pathologists and other medical specialists as needed

  • Preparing detailed reports about test results

  • Providing accurate test results to doctors or other healthcare professionals

  • Entering information from tests into medical databases

  • Organizing and sanitizing the laboratory

  • Maintaining sensitive testing equipment

  • Maintaining laboratory inventory levels and ordering supplies as needed

Where do medical techs work?

Most med techs work in general medical and surgical hospitals, often working in several areas of a clinical laboratory. They also often work in medical and diagnostic laboratories, outpatient care facilities, doctors’ offices, community clinics, or other medical facilities that need specimens collected and tested. Pharmacies that perform on-site testing may also employ medical technicians and allied health staffing agencies typically have numerous positions available for med techs.

What skills make a good medical tech?

Good medical technicians are well-rounded in the science field, including versatile knowledge in biology, anatomy, and chemistry. They have advanced skills in the performance of a wide array of diagnostic procedures utilizing various types of specimens. Med techs are familiar with a broad range of lab equipment and possess the adaptability to learn to operate new tools and machines as needed. They excel at organization, which allows them to expertly manage numerous different tests simultaneously without mixing up samples and results. Emotional intelligence and excellent written and verbal communication skills along with other interpersonal skills are highly desirable traits for good medical techs.

How to become a Medical Tech

Prospective med techs must earn either a two-year associate degree or a postsecondary certificate from a community college or vocational school program accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Med techs who want to pursue higher positions may want to opt for a four-year bachelor’s degree instead. 

Professional certification and/or licensing isn’t required in all states, but some employers may request certification even if it’s not required and may even include it as a stipulation for employment and/or advancement. Med techs can pursue certification as a Medical Laboratory Technician through the American Society of Clinical Pathology or the American Medical Technologists. The ASCP Board of Certification examinations have been approved for licensure purposes in numerous states that require licensure and/or certification.

All travel med tech positions require fulfillment of any state licensure or certification requirements. Some positions require at least one year of experience in a laboratory setting and a few require Basic Life Support certification.
