Physical nature of Medical Lab Technician job Posted: Sun Jul 26, 2015 7:05 pm
I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia and I'm studying to become an MLT. I would just like to know if there is a lot of sitting or standing or switching between both. Do you have any suggestions for how someone with my condition can best cope in the workplace?

Thank you very much,
Sasha

All of the 9 job/internships labs I have worked at require a lot up up and down. You must be able to go between standing and sitting often. I have seen one exception to this in a veteran working first at an Army Medical Center then at the VA. Both his legs were amputated above the knee so he was wheelchair bound. His employers were obligated to accommodate him. Sorry to take so long to post this. I myself got into Medical Technology under the sponsorship of the Colorado Department of Rehabilitation who paid my tuition because I was/am physically disabled. The job does allow use of crutches but it slows you down a bit.
