Medical Technologist School in Georgia

Medical Technologist Education in Georgia

Be sure you obtain your four-year degree from a program that is nationally accredited by the NAACLS or similar recognized authority. A typical degree for Med Techs is the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences (though other science-related degrees may be acceptable). Depending on the learning institution or program you choose, you may be able to complete a portion of your coursework on-line. Some programs may even allow fulfilling lower level courses (generally, in the first two years of study) at community colleges. However, before considering these educational options, verify that all course work taken will comply with the national accrediting agency requirements and will be counted in the course curriculum hours needed to obtain your four-year degree.

Most degree programs will include study in general chemistry, microbiology, anatomy, physiology, hematology and immunology. They may also require coursework in mathematics and statistics. Schools often require completion of clinical rotations in medical laboratories to gain practical and valuable hands-on experience.
