Medical Technology Program
Medical technologists are laboratory scientists who are part of the medical team of specialists that work together to determine the presence, extent, or absence of disease. They do this by performing a full range of laboratory tests, from simple blood screens to more complex tests to detect diseases such as cancer, coronary artery disease, and diabetes.
In conjunction with The Ohio State University, School of Allied Medical Professionals, medical technology students are given the opportunity to complete a clinical internship at MetroHealth Medical Center.
This internship is comprised of five rotations in each of the following disciplines of clinical laboratory science:
- Transfusion Medicine
The students work under the supervision of a practicing medical technologist to apply the theoretical knowledge and laboratory skills learned in the academic setting to the clinical setting. Upon graduation with a bachelor’s degree of science, and passing the Clinical Board Registry, the student receives certification as a medical technologist under the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
