Med Techs in Norway
It seems to me that the Canadian and the Norwegian MLTs may have much the
same education. We have a three year college education, and are able to work
within lots of different fields, such as pathology (cyto and histo),
clinical chemistry, hematology, immunohematology, microbiology etc. (I've
written some words about it on my personal homepage, but the server seems to
be down right now... The url is http://home.online.no/~nimalja but promise
not to laugh ok? :) It's still very unfinished... and private.)The Norwegian
title is "bioingeniør", not MLT though. Has a nice ring to it, hasn't it?
Bio engineer... :) Not that we have as much mathemathics or physics as other
engineers have though...

In Canada, the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science
(formerlly the CSLT) certifies its members with the designation R.T.
(Registered Technologist) and the General Certification includes
the 5 core disciplines of Medical Technology: hematology,
chemistry, immunohematology (blood banking), bacteriology and
Under our system, anyone with an RT can technically work
anywhere in Canada (with their credentials readily recognized), in
any or all of the afore mentioned disciplines and everyone
(regardless of discipline) are paid, as RT's are paid in that facility
So, if you come across a med tech (RT) from Canada, beware,
they could be quite proficient and knowledgable about all things
