How to Become a Travel Medical Technologist

Medical technologists perform tests and analyze tissue samples and bodily fluids to help doctors diagnose patients. The test results help physicians make an official diagnosis and develop patient treatment plans. To become a medical technologist, you must:

  • Complete a bachelor's degree in medical technology, life sciences or a related field

  • Finish an accredited medical technology program

Additionally, some states may require medical technologists to have a license before they can start working in laboratory settings. So, before starting your travel medical technologist job, check if the state you're going to requires a license. Part of licensure in some states is being certified, so again, ensure you are certified for the state you plan to work in. Getting certified or having a master's degree, even when not required, can make you a more competitive traveler because it shows your professional capabilities.
