Frequently

Asked Questions

What are the requirements to travel as an MLT?

01. Healthcare traveler requirements vary by facility and state. As a best practice, be sure your licenses and certifications are up to date before you apply. You may need to obtain an additional license specific to the state in which you plan to work. Med Lab Techs with at least 2 years of on-the-job experience have better odds of getting placed in premium assignments.

How do I get started as a Traveling MLT?

02. It’s important to first find and commit to a healthcare staffing agency you want to work with, then just go for it – apply for the job! LRS Healthcare recruiters take pride in listening to your requests and finding you the best travel job that pays well and matches your lifestyle and interests.

How much will I be paid to travel as a MLT?

03.Pay packages vary by experience, job, facility, and agency. Sites and job boards that promote weekly pay either display the pay before or after taxes and include or exclude travel and housing stipends. These variables affect what your take home pay could be and could potentially vary from the number promoted on the job post. For an accurate pay package breakdown, we recommend you speak with an LRS Healthcare recruiter so we can review your personalized pay package with you in full transparency and answer your questions so you know what to expect on each pay stub.

How long are MLT travel assignments?

04. A standard MLT travel assignment is 13 weeks. This time frame gives you an opportunity to learn the job, explore the city, and make new friends. No matter the length of your allied healthcare travel assignment, if you’ve found a job (or city) you enjoy, you can always request an extension.
