Medical Technology at Marist

Graduates are eligible for national certification as well as New York State licensure. The program represents a cooperative effort between the College and local clinical laboratories to provide a four-year curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Medical Technology. Students are broadly educated in the liberal arts while taking courses in biology, chemistry, math, and computer science to prepare for advanced clinical courses. 

Students take clinical courses on campus and gain experience in a simulated medical laboratory. Clinical courses include Hematology, Clinical Microscopy, Immunohematology, Clinical Microbiology, and Clinical Chemistry.

The curriculum emphasizes an understanding of the pathogenesis and manifestation of diseases analyzed by laboratory testing and the theoretical principles supporting diagnostic tests. Students complete a six-month internship at an affiliated medical laboratory studying diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic monitoring of actual patient cases. They study side by side with professional medical technologists and are under the direct supervision of Marist faculty.

Accreditation

The Medical Technology Program at Marist is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
