Clinical Affiliates


The program coordinator of the Medical Laboratory Technology Program at Middlesex Community College will make every effort to place a student at a clinical affiliate that is within a reasonable travel distance. Due to circumstances beyond our control, usually because of staffing issues at the clinical site, students may be placed later than expected or at a site further than desirable for travel.

Clinical placements are announced the semester prior to MLT practicum classes.  Whenever possible, student preferences for clinical sites are taken into consideration.  Due to the scheduling nature of clinical affiliates, it is possible that not all students will be placed into clinical rotations simultaneously.  In other words, the start of some student clinical rotations could be delayed.  With the assistance of our clinical affiliates, the delay period should not exceed 30 days.  During this waiting period, the student will still have access to course instructors, training modules, equipment and slides.

Placement of students in the clinical rotations will be determined by the following:

  1. Academic performance in the MLT program, evaluated by the average course percent grade for each MLT
  2. Instructor recommendation. Often students are recommended on their compliance with the absence and tardy policies and alignment with the MLT program mission
  3. Proximity to the clinical
