Medical Technology

BA major in Biology

Medical Technology:  Students wishing to pursue medical technology should consult with Dr Jamie Potter for further information.   

Enrollment in hospital experiences is limited by small class size, and there is no guarantee of admission. Usually a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 is needed in order to be a successful applicant. Students who choose not to continue in the medical technology (clinical laboratory science) path or who are not admitted to the professional curriculum may complete a year in biology during the senior year.

Following successful completion of the senior year in the hospital, students are qualified to sit for the national certification exams. These are administered by the Board of Registry of Medical Technologists and the National Certification Agency for Medical Laboratory Personnel. For further information about medical technology  contact Dr. Jamie Potter.
