Objectifs du programme

The Biomedical Laboratory Technology program prepares students to practise the professions of medical technologist and medical laboratory technician.

In accordance with the Professional Code, the scope of practice of medical technologists consists of performing medical biology analyses and examinations of the human body or specimens and ensuring the technical validity of results to be used for diagnosis or therapeutic follow-up.

Medical technologists and medical laboratory technicians work mainly in public health institutions. In clinical settings, these technologists and technicians are found in sample collection centres, outpatient and screening clinics, diagnostic laboratories, health care units and emergency departments.

Medical technologists and medical laboratory technicians work in interdisciplinary situations with health professionals, including nursing and medical staff, and specialists such as hematologists, biochemists, microbiologists, etc.

Direct contact with clients occurs at the time when samples are taken and when analyses are conducted at the point of care, both in public and private healthcare establishments and at home.

Technicienne de laboratoire médical

Les techniciens et les techniciennes de laboratoire médical, aussi appelées techniciennes biomédicales, effectuent des analyses biochimiques, hématologiques ou microbiologiques. Elles préparent le matériel de laboratoire et les échantillons, compilent et analysent les données de laboratoire et rédigent des rapports d’analyse. En banque de sang, elles préparent des produits sanguins. C’est un métier stimulant qui se déroule dans un environnement calme. Il demande des aptitudes pour les mathématiques, les sciences et de l’intérêt pour le travail de laboratoire. Une carrière comme technicienne de laboratoire médical convient aux personnes méticuleuses, possédant une bonne dextérité manuelle et un esprit d’analyse.
