Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Program
Cameron Mason graduated from College of The Albemarle’s MLT program in July 2020.
“After graduating from Camden County High School, I knew I wanted a career that combined the medical and technology fields. My advisor suggested the MLT program and it sounded like a great option. The program being only 18 months, as well as the class to teacher ratio, definitely helped with my decision.”
Cameron credits Terri Riddick, Assistant Professor/Program Coordinator for MLT, with providing students a quality structured curriculum that allowed them to learn everything necessary for future employment. “Ms. Riddick and all the instructors worked closely with us to help prepare us for clinical rotations. I learned all the skills I need for success such as critical thinking, technical know-how, workplace professionalism and applicable medical knowledge.”
While completing clinical rotation at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia, Cameron was encouraged to apply for a position in the microbiology lab. He applied and was hired less than a month after graduating.
Cameron now plans on using the education reimbursement CHKD offers its employees to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Science from Old Dominion University.
