Medical Laboratory Technology

Danville Community College has partnered with Reynolds Community College to bring its Medical Laboratory Technology to citizens of our service region.  Students take general education courses at DCC and then apply for admission to Reynolds.  Students have assigned clinicals at area health care institutions and take didactic portions of their classes on-line.

NOTE:  Students who have a felony conviction, or a conviction for assault, will not be allowed into clinical facilities in allied health programs.  They are thus advised to choose a non-allied health field.
