Medical Technology Research Track
Around the clock each day medical technologists, also called clinical laboratory scientists, provide vital information to physicians. They do so by performing a variety of laboratory procedures which range from identifying microorganisms to providing blood in emergency transfusions. These professionals are trained in clinical chemistry, hematology, immunology, microbiology, blood banking and laboratory management. They are dedicated to providing test accuracy, quality of work and patient confidentiality.
If you have keen investigative instincts, a strong ability in science, a desire to help others and enjoy the challenge of solving problems quickly and accurately, you should consider a career in the medical laboratory sciences. The medical technology/clinical laboratory science profession integrates and applies concepts of biology, chemistry and medicine, providing both career flexibility and job security. Opportunities for advancement include management, teaching, marketing and research positions. Additionally, the B.S. degree in medical and research technology is an excellent background for those who plan to obtain advanced professional degrees in the biomedical sciences or related medical careers.
