Student Learning Outcomes:
The program is designed to provide the requisite course background to allow acceptance into an approved school of medical technology (during the student's fourth year) and successful completion thereof.
This program of study is appropriate for one who desires a medical technologist position in a hospital or clinical laboratory.
Students who wish to become medical technologists pursue a minimum of three years at USF prior to entering the clinical year in an approved school of medical technology. College credit equivalent to one full calendar year (40 semester hours) will be granted to students who successfully complete the professional (clinical) year's program in an approved hospital. This credit is awarded in the form of the courses described below. A bachelor of science degree in Medical Technology will be conferred provided all other course requirements have been satisfied. Majors must participate in program assesment activities.
Some students elect to complete a four-year major in Biology or Chemistry before applying for the professinal year experience. The University has an affiliation agreement with Sanford Health in Sioux Falls; however, students may elect to attend any other accredited professional program if successful in gaining admission.
In addition to the liberal arts core requirements, the three-year program at USF should include the following courses:
