Medical Laboratory Technicians
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for medical laboratory technicians will grow by 30 percent through 2022, which is much faster than the average for all careers. Demand for laboratory personnel is expected to be strong due to recent federal legislation that has enabled more people to have access to affordable health care. Also, more people are living longer, which will mean a greater need to diagnose medical conditions, such as cancer and type 2 diabetes, through laboratory procedures.
