Medical Technologist -- What Do We Actually Do Anyway?


I was told when starting the field that Medical Lab Science is a thankless field, where most people don't know you even exist. I had no idea that meant that people who work in the hospital -- nurses, doctors, secretaries, etc etc etc ad naseum, have no idea who you are or what you do either. 

The "what I actually do" picture is accurate though. It's just missing "waiting for Sunquest to unfreeze during an MTP" or doing 4 hour long maintenance on the chemistry analyzers.
