A Medical Technology degree prepares students to perform various chemical, histological, and microbial laboratory procedures used in the diagnosis, study, and treatment of disease. Students with this degree seek employment in hospital laboratories, physicians' offices, and health departments. For clinical practice, a student must be certified through the Board of Registry by completing a one year clinical internship. For more information about internships and careers in clinical laboratory science, go to the Montana University System Clinical Laboratory Sciences website.
The 4+1 degree is the more flexible option, in which students complete the four years of the Bachelor's degree on the UM campus. Students may apply to a clinical internship program anywhere in the country.
