Judy Y. Earl, MS, MT(ASCP)
Philosophy/Background: As a medical technologist for many years I have gained invaluable experience in clinical bacteriology, virology, parasitology, mycology, immunology (serology), chemistry and hematology. In addition to technical and supervisory duties in the lab I have spent numerous hours teaching/training nurses, medical technologists, PT's, OT's and residents.
I began teaching at the college level in 1987 as a part-time instructor. I have been a full-time professor at Montco since 1995. I love teaching in a community college where the student/faculty ratio is small and the opportunity for students to learn microbiology "from the bench" as well as the lecture is "large."
My goal for all Microbiology students is to learn AND APPLY this knowledge
to both their professional and personal lives.

Meets twice a week in the Spring and is designed for Medical Laboratory Technician students as an introductory microbiology course and to gain extensive experience in identification of bacteria. The course is open to non-MLT students that seek a broader knowledge of bacteriology provided they meet specific prerequisites.
