Medical Technology Overview
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.
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, students will have earned 36 additional credits toward the B.S. degree in medical technology from Hartwick. Students are then eligible to take the Board of Registry examination which earns the MT (ASCP) certification.
Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.
