Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology
Students may apply for entry into medical technology clinical training at an affiliated hospital at the end of the third year of the microbiology or microbiology/medical technology emphasis curriculum. The student must register for BIOS 411 (Medical Technology- Internship) to receive academic credit for the clinical training. If all General Education Requirements are completed before the student enters the training program, a B.S. degree in medical technology will be awarded to the student upon completion of the clinical training program. However, because training programs seldom accept students after only three years of academic work, it is recommended that the student plan to complete the four year curriculum and earn a B.S. degree in microbiology or microbiology/medical technology emphasis. The fifth year (twelve-month training period) would then be spent in an approved medical technology training program at an affiliated hospital. During that year, the student would earn an additional 32 credits in BIOS 411 (Medical Technology-Internship) and a B.S. in medical technology.
Students should consult the department chair about training program applications during the spring semester of their junior year (or one calendar year prior to the planned beginning of the training program).
