Medical Technology

The medical technology major includes three years of natural science courses at Drury University that serve as pre-requisites for the one year of clinical coursework at either Cox College School of Medical Technology or the Mercy Hospital-Joplin School of Medical Laboratory Science. The Drury Core also must be completed during the first three years at Drury. Upon completion of all coursework at Drury and either Cox or Mercy, students will have earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Medical Technology. Graduates of the program will be qualified to serve as medical technologists and/or pursue further certification to specialize within medical laboratory science.

All prerequisites must be completed prior to enrollment in the following courses.
Co‐requisites must be taken during the same semester.
