Medical Technologists and Technicians

Typically, a majority of patient encounters in health care involves interactions with medical technologist and technician professionals. These engagements are often short but essential. Medical technologists and technicians bear a large part of the responsibility for the general outcome of patient care. Yet they are often overlooked. The medical tests you have had done were probably done by a CUPE medical diagnostic technologist or technician.

CUPE's medical technologists and technicians are: biomedical techs, x-ray techs, ultrasound techs, lab techs, nuclear medicine techs, orthopedic techs, combined lab and x-ray techs, cardiovascular techs, pharmacy techs and ECG techs.
