Major: Medical Technology
Hometown:North Canton, Ohio

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.

Courses

During your first three years as a medical laboratory science major at the University of Mount Union, you will explore concepts in chemistry, genetics, microbiology and the unity and diversity of life. These courses will help prepare you for clinical training.

You will be required to take a “clinical year” of training at the Cleveland Clinic School of Medical Technology, which amounts to 2,000 hours of intense study and laboratory experience, culminating in a comprehensive examinations, all parts of which must be passed in order to graduate. Successful completion of the “clinical year” satisfied the Mount Union requirement for a Senior Culminating Experience.
