Medical Technology Major

 Johnstone Science Center

Although medical laboratories are physically located in hospitals, clinics, and physicians’ offices, the real location is on the frontier of scientific medicine.

Here, the best qualified men and women are building careers in laboratory medicine by applying their expert knowledge and practical skills. Medical technologists, whose broad background of college and clinical laboratory training provides the necessary ingredients for their professional responsibilities, fulfill a prominent role in these laboratories.

Where a background in medical technology can take you.

Hartwick’s medical technology major provides students with a solid liberal arts education and rigorous hands-on clinical laboratory training—giving them a real competitive edge in their future careers.

Because medical technology is a rapidly changing field, technical skills may become obsolete, but the lifelong skills you’ll learn at Hartwick ensure you’ll thrive, whatever the future brings.

A closer look.

Hartwick’s 3+1 program consists of three years of academic work at Hartwick (which also partially fulfills departmental requirements for a major in biology), followed by a one-year clinical internship at the Rochester General Hospital Clinical Laboratory Technology Program.

Beyond the basic.

Hartwick’s medical technology major permits sufficient flexibility for students to take advantage of numerous off-campus study programs applicable to their future profession. Students are encouraged to get hands-on experience in the multifaceted responsibilities of professional medical technologists such as electronic equipment maintenance, computer programming, business and personnel management, and teaching techniques.

Putting medical technology to work.

Hartwick medical technology students work in hospital labs and in interesting careers throughout the healthcare industry. Some go on to further study at top-notch graduate schools.
