Medical Technology

The Hartwick Advantage...

The Medical Technology Program at Hartwick is a three-plus-one program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in medical technology. The program consists of three years of academic work at Hartwick followed by a 12-month clinical internship at Rochester General Hospital. Rochester General Hospital in Rochester, NY offers a comprehensive training program with a broad range of faculty expertise and a recently remodeled state-of-the-art medical technology facility. Students will be exposed to a wide range of clinical experiences resulting in a truly exceptional education.

The three-plus-one program fulfills the requirements of the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Students who are accepted for a 12-month clinical internship begin their internships at the end of their junior year. Following completion of the 51-week internship, they will have earned 36 credits toward the B.S. degree in medical technology from Hartwick and a certificate indicating completion of the school of medical technology. The student is then eligible to take the Board of Registry examination which earns the MT (ASCP) certification.

Hartwick's medical technology major provides students with a solid liberal arts and sciences 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, the technical skills you learn may become obsolete, but the life-long skills you learn through Hartwick's "Liberal Arts in Practice " approach will ensure that you learn new skills and adapt to new situations with ease and style. The experience students receive at Hartwick prepares them for their future in a field that requires professionals to be self-sufficient, precise, and thorough.

The requirements of Hartwick's medical technology program and the general College requirements for the baccalaureate degree permit sufficient flexibility for students to take advantage of numerous off-campus study programs applicable to their profession. This is in keeping with the multi-faceted responsibilities of professional medical technologists (electronic maintenance, computer programming, business and personnel management, and teaching techniques).
