Why Choose Saint Rose for a Medical Technology degree?

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 3 + 1 program in Medical Technology combines three years at Saint Rose with a one-year clinical internship at the Rochester General Hospital School of Medical Technology. 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.

The Science faculty at Saint Rose is deeply committed to the success of our students. Our faculty teach both lecture and lab, increasing contact hours between students and faculty. We offer research opportunities, both on campus at Saint Rose and in surrounding labs of the Capital District. Saint Rose gives researchers many opportunities to excel.
