Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Medical technologists assist in diagnosing and treating disease by applying scientific knowledge and skill to the supervision and accurate performance of complex laboratory, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Career opportunities exist for medical technologists in hospitals, private clinics, pharmaceutical research, government and industry. The pre-medical technology area of concentration usually involves only the first two years of study at UMBC, though students have the option of remaining at UMBC to earn a Bachelor's Degree before moving on to professional studies at another institution  The Office for Academic and Pre-Professional Advising can assist students interested in pursuing the pre-medical technology curriculum.

The program description below meets the requirements for most nationally accredited medical technology programs. Students should become familiar with the requirements of the school(s) from which they finally wish to obtain the degree to plan a program that will best use the time spent at UMBC.
