Michener, NS partner to provide medical laboratory technologist training


As part of its larger partnership with the Government of Nova Scotia, the Michener Institute of Education at the University Health Network will be providing medical laboratory technologist training. The three-year program is offered flexibly online and will train 40 people. The program is supported by an investment of around $6M from Nova Scotia, and those who take the program will be expected to sign a return of service agreement to take a position with Nova Scotia Health. “[W]e are committed to identifying innovative solutions that will train more students to fill vacancies in critical health care jobs, like medical laboratory technologists,” said Nova Scotia Health President Karen Oldfield. “This collaboration will provide an opportunity to bring health care professionals from around the world to our province and provide the best possible care for our patients.”
