Depends on your expectation if you look at the salary. As Bikash said, it is a part of medicine, and you wont get laid off unlike other professions.. But you have to find the answer if you gonna like the work setting as well. Medical field is very rewarding field.

If I were you, I would first get a job in a hospital and then make them pay for the course. Because it is one of the few fields in demand within the medical field, they usually do and if you are not allowed to work, get the degree and find a hospital that will give you a sign in bonus when you apply to work. All the best! Healthcare jobs are tough but the pay is awesome, usually.

bkoolbuddy,Med Tech is a profession that has a lot of scope currently as well as in the future. So, there is a very, very less chance of you being laid off or some thing like this.The work area is mainly hospital or clinic labs performing different tests on human specimens.As you might also know it has differnet fields, so you can either choose your specific field when you graduate and work in a hospital or work as a generalist in all the areas. However, while at school you have to study all the areas as required by the curriculum. Paywise, you can easily make anywhere from $16.00 to $25/hour depending on the shift difference andweekend schedules. The work very stressful and you have to be 100% careful and focused all the time. Your salary goes up depending on the hospital policy and your work performance, but it goes up very slowly. According to the US Department of Labor, in average Med Techs make $35,000-$38,000 annually,starting salary. Most hospitals also process your paperwork if they hire you as a Med Tech. So, it is a rewarding field in terms of scope, job stability, and sponsorship. Good Luck to you!By the way, some Med Tech/Clinical Science schools are more tough and expensive than others,whereas the degree all of thek award to graduating students is the same. So, if you want helpwith easy Med Tech schools, reply to this thread.

It has a very good scope.

I guess he is asking for medicine technologist job not medicine technician, so the chances of getting job is very good and you don't need to worry about sponsoring.

Median annual earnings of medical and clinical laboratory technologists were $45,730 in May 2004. The middle 50 percent earned between $38,740 and $54,310. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $32,240, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $63,120. Median annual earnings in the industries employing the largest numbers of medical and clinical laboratory technologists in May 2004 were as follows:
