If your goal is a career in a laboratory-related health science field, consider our Medical Technology programs. Medical Technologists conduct a variety of laboratory tests in order to provide information for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.

The College of Saint Rose offers two programs, both of which lead to eligibility for professional certification:

  • The 3 + 1 program in Medical Technology combines three years at Saint Rose with a one-year clinical internship at a leading hospital-affiliated school—either the Rochester General Hospital School of Medical Technology or the School of Medical Technology at New York Methodist Hospital. This program leads to a BS from the College of Saint Rose.
  • The 3 + 2 program combines three years at Saint Rose with a two-year clinical internship at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. This option leads to a BS from Saint Rose and a master’s degree from the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

After completing either program, you will be eligible for ASCP and NCA examinations to become a certified medical technologist, as well as for the New York State licensing exam.
