Medical technologists are lab professionals that play an important role in patient health by conducting the medical tests ordered by physicians. These tests and their results are critical in allowing physicians to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment.
Studying medical technology at SBU provides the unique opportunity to receive a Christian education from SBU and also learn at the Cox School of Medical Technology in Springfield, Mo. The medical technology degree is a four-year program leading to a bachelor of science degree. You will complete the first three years at SBU and then complete the fourth year at Cox Medical Center South (or another approved medical technology program). This program is perfect for students wanting to pursue a med tech certification.
Once you complete the medical technologist program and pass the examination given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, you will be a certified medical technologist.
The Medical Technology degree is offered through SBU's College of Arts and Sciences.
