Medical Technology

The Medical Technology Program is offered through the Department of Biology & Geology.

Before entering hospital training, students enrolled in the Medical Technology Program at Baldwin Wallace University may elect one of two options: the three-plus-one hospital-based program or the four-plus-one hospital-based program (Post-BS option). Both options require the fulfillment of the University requirements for graduation and also the following requirements of the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS):

Sixteen hours of biological sciences, including Microbiology, Immunology, Genetics or Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology; 16 hours of chemistry including Organic or Biochemistry; Statistics; the bachelor’s degree, and a 12 month hospital training program.

Before admission to the hospital training program, a student’s transcript is evaluated by the registrar and sent to the hospital at the student’s request. Requests for this evaluation, as well as an application for admission to the hospital school of medical technology, should be submitted about one year prior to entrance into the hospital training program. Priority will be given to students enrolled in the three-one program; however, acceptance is not guaranteed.

Upon satisfactory completion of one year of hospital training, the student receives a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in biology and is then eligible to take a National Certification Examination. Four hours from the hospital training program will count toward the Biology major at Baldwin Wallace.

Students will receive close personal counseling. A faculty advisor with practical experience and genuine concern will work with any student who seeks this help. Periodically, there are opportunities to visit medical technology laboratories and to interact with professionals, as well as students, currently in training.

Students interested in a three-plus-one option should consult with the Medical Technology Program Coordinator.
