When I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field. I was interested in becoming a medical technologist, and heard that Mount Union had an outstanding medical technology program.
Medical Technology Learning Objectives
Students majoring in medical technology will spend three years of study at the University of Mount Union and their final year participating in professional training at the Cleveland Clinic. While at Mount Union, students will gain a basic foundation in science and a broad liberal arts background. The time spent at the Cleveland Clinic School of Medical Technology amounts to 2,000 hours of intense study and laboratory experience. Upon successful completion, the bachelor of science degree in medical technology is awarded by Mount Union. Graduates are eligible to sit for certification examinations given by the Board of Registry of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, the National Credentialing Agency for Laboratory Personnel and/or equivalent certifying agencies.
With our new $23 million natural sciences facility, Bracy Hall, and the facilities of the nationally-renowned Cleveland Clinic, medical technology students have the classroom and laboratory essentials required for functional learning. This helps to ensure that we are providing future laboratory personnel with the competence that is critical to high-quality health care.
