- SBU, in cooperation with the Cox School of Medical Technology, offers a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in medical technology.
- Students are certified in this field upon completing the degree and passing the examination given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
- Medical technologists are lab professional that play an important role in patient health in that they conduct the medical tests that are ordered by physicians. Physicians rely on the results of these tests in making their diagnosis and in determining the proper treatment.
- Most recently, at the May 2011 commencement, Dr. Rosalyn Snellen received the Orien B. Hendrex Distinguished Teacher Award.
Employment opportunities are very promising. There is a significant shortage of medical technologists worldwide which may worsen in the years to come.
