Skills of a Medical Technician

The medical technician carries out important tasks like recording lab work, collecting samples, and analyzing those samples through diagnostic equipment.

In addition, surgical technicians are often the most directly involved with patients, working close with the surgical team to prepare for the surgery and attending to patient care after the procedure.
