Medical Technology Minor


The Medical Technology Minor is meant to be paired with the B.A. in Biology major.
Required coursework is offered during the day only; three academic years are needed to complete the minor coursework, followed by a senior year, 30 credit hour, extenship at a hospital-based school of medical technology (accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences-NAACLS). Students apply for acceptance at accredited medical technology programs-La Roche College does not place students into specific medical techonology schools. Information on accredited programs can be obtained from the Coordinator of Health Science Programs.

To successfully complete the Medical Technology Minor, the following coursework is required:

  • 38 credits of Medical Technology Requirements
  • 22 credits of Biology Electives as preparation for the Medical Technology externship
