Department of Medical and Research Technology
We are Maryland's largest medical laboratory science (medical technology) program, offering both undergraduate, graduate degrees, and opportunities for professional certification.
In keeping with the philosophy and purposes of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the Department of Medical and Research Technology (DMRT) is committed to the developing career focused Goals, Core Values and Career Entry Competencies.
The bachelor's degree allows students to specialize in one of two career tracks:
Both tracks are upper level allied health curricula offered in two years of full-time or three years of part-time study. In addition to lecture and laboratory instruction, students in both tracks complete externship training.
DMRT also offers a Master of Science Degree in two tracks:
- Biomedical Research
- Laboratory Management
The graduate program provides flexibility in scheduling coursework and in arranging programs of study to fit individual interests and backgrounds.
DMRT offers an accelerated one-year categorical certificate program for individuals who already possess a baccalaureate degree in a basic science area, such as chemistry or biology.
After completion of coursework and training, students are eligible to take national certification examinations in their specialty area.
