      That would be a medical technologist.  If a person wants to be certified by the ASCP (American Society of Clinical Pathologists), which is what most hospitals are now requiring, then they need a bachelor's degree in clinical lab science, then they need to pass a test given by the ASCP, and also to get a license from the state they want to work in.  During the last year of studies, clinical rotations are done in a hospital so the student can see the practical applications of what they're learning.  The ASCP exam is taken after graduation, and since it's based on practical experience, I would recommend starting a job before taking this test.  Hospitals will allow you 3 months to take and pass this test after youve started working (your temporary license is good for 3 months).  Every 2 years, continuing education courses are required in each different lab department (chemistry, hematology, blood banking, immunology/serology, and microbiology).
