Reviews of BS in Medical Technology graduates:

J. L.
◈ Studied BS in Medical Technology
◈ At Manila Central University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout my college education: My course is challenging, difficult, tough yet enjoyable. I need to memorize and understand many informations like in our subject in Bacteriology and Parasitology. I also need to have patience and try not to become sleepy when I'm reviewing. Although it's hard, it is enjoyable as well.Especially when I got to read on the components of our blood and other body fluids as well as the diseases that our body may suffer.
As a BS Medical technology student, you need to have patience and be hard working specially when you are in your internship. You need to adapt in the hospital settings on which you can truly apply what you are studying. You need to have confidence and most specially faith in God because it is not easy to deal with patients, the laboratory staffs as well your co-interns. A student of this course needs to trust himself in order to do the job you need to do like blood extraction. One must always remember the laws and ethics and discipline not just a student but as a training individual.

list bulletMy current job: I'm still reviewing for my board exam this coming March 2013, but for almost 3 months I have training experiences in a clinic near my location.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I used what I learned from our school as well as from the hospital where I have spent my 6 months internship.
For what I have used during my training months, I apply what I learn manually. I read the blood smear as well as the urine on a glass slide microscopically. Because it's a primary clinic, there is no new technology there like the machines so it will be the one who will read the blood or the specimens.

But then I'm planning to apply on a tertiary hospital and I'm sure I can apply what I've learned about using the machines in the hospital laboratory/.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Medical Technology: I recommend this course because a lot of hospital and clinics here and abroad is looking for a medical technologist.
The job is hard, but if you are dedicated to help people and you will enjoy what you are going to do, surely it will lessen your stress.
Of course the work is difficult but as you go through and pursue, nothing will beat you. There will be friends who will support you and be with you also.
As for the salary, it depends on what type of hospital but from where I have spent my internship one of my staff told me that he has lots of benefits. I also ask one of our junior staff there, and after a year of hard work she is earning 15-20k a month (sorry not remember so well therefore I put a range) .
But always remember that you must love your job because you will reap what you sow.
