Medical Technology (BS)

Richard Browne, PhD, directs the medical technology program, which uses applied biology and chemistry to train students to become clinical laboratory scientists.

Medical Technology, a field of applied biology and chemistry, is appropriate for students primarily interested in the delivery of health services.

Medical technologists, also referred to as clinical laboratory scientists, are the detectives of the health care world. Using analytical techniques, they search for clues both to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury and to help patients stay healthy.

Medical technology, also known as clinical laboratory science, deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as the monitoring and prevention of diseases. It is a field of applied biology and chemistry and is appropriate for students interested in the delivery of health-care services.


Our medical technology program has been accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences for more than 50 years and is accredited through 2019.

Our program is compliant with the educational essential requirements that support the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). See the Medical Technology Student Handbook below for a complete description of requirements in the Medical Technology Program.
