Academic Programs & Policies
The DMRT offers a baccalaureate degree in Medical and Research Technology. Students may 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. Spring admit students will require 2 1/2 years for completion of the program. In addition to lecture and laboratory instruction, students in both tracks complete externship training.
In January and continuing through the spring semester of their senior year, the Medical Laboratory Science students train among the Department’s 16 clinical affiliate sites, while the Biotechnology students train at biotechnology companies in the Greater Baltimore-Washington area. Graduates of the Medical Laboratory Science Program are eligible to take national certification examinations in Medical Laboratory Science.
