Transfer Track-Medical Technology (MEDTC-AA)

Area of Concentration: This transfer track is designed to prepare students for upper division studies in medical technology programs. These upper division programs include a year of clinical studies which may be completed within the two years of upper division work (accelerated program) at selected institutions or may be completed in a 2 + 1 program in which clinical training is completed after receipt of the B.S. degree. Admission to the clinical phase of the upper division program is usually competitive and usually requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 in all science or math/science courses attempted. Graduates are eligible to take the Registry Examination of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists or the NCA. Passing these or similar tests is a general requirement for employment in the profession. Medical technologists are employed by medical facilities to manage, design, and perform laboratory tests to aid in diagnosis and recovery of patients. State universities having the upper division work include UWF, FIU, FAU, USF, and UCF. The following program was designed in conjunction with the University of West Florida program. It is strongly recommended that students carefully examine the catalog of the university to which transfer is expected.
