Pre-Health Sciences Program

About the Medical Technology Program

Medical technicians are an integral part of the health-care system because they are the people responsible for getting test results out of the lab and into the hands of doctors. They use a broad range of techniques and equipment to analyze everything from blood to tissue samples. Through practice and experience these skilled professionals learn how to interpret test results, and even understand some of the physiological conditions that affect the test results. Most medical technology programs are twelve months long. The majority of this time is spent in laboratories working with actual specimens. Requirements beyond core classes include: BIOL 205 Human Anatomy, BIOL 206 Human Physiology, BIOL 308 Immunology, BIOL 322 Advanced Genetics, CHEM 208 Analytical Chemistry, and BIOL/CHEM 336 Biochemistry.
