Pre-Medical Technology


Most pre-professional programs in medical technology are four to five years in duration including two- to two-and-one-half years of pre-professional course work. Students wishing to pursue medical technology as a career may take their prerequisite course work at Wayland, pursue their Bachelor of Science degree through one of the many related undergraduate degree programs, and then transfer into a professional level program in their junior year. Applicants to medical technology programs are required to have approximately 70 semester hours in prescribed sciences and academic foundation courses to be eligible for admission.
