Health Care Technology
The Health Care Technology Certificate Program prepares graduates as multi-skilled flexible health care workers, who work under the direction of licensed professionals such as, medical laboratory technologists, registered professional nurses, radiologic technologists, surgical technologists, and physicians.
Students may work in a variety of health care settings. The graduate will receive a certificate specific to the option in the program they choose to complete: electrocardiography or medical laboratory assistant (phlebotomy). Certification exams may be available for all options and students are expected to take appropriate national certification exams, if available. The Health Care Technology Program graduate is not intended to be a medical laboratory technician or other professional, but will serve to assist health care professionals in appropriate ways to carry out their responsibilities. Both options of the Health Care Technology Program are available on the Logan Campus. The Boone/Lincoln, Williamson, and Wyoming/McDowell campuses offer the program support courses only.
