Program Details

Upon completion of three years of college-based study, the student sends transcripts to NAACLS for evaluation. This is done prior to his/her acceptance for internship at an accredited hospital. King’s College is presently affiliated with several hospitals where a 12 month internship may be taken. Clinical experiences may be obtained at Geisinger School of Medical Laboratory Science, Danville, PA; Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, PA; WellSpan York Hospital, York, PA; Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, Lancaster, PA; Reading Hospital, Reading, PA; University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia, PA; UPMC Susquehanna, Williamsport, PA; Sentara RMH School of Medical Science, Harrisonburg, VA; or any hospital having a School of Medical Technology approved by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP). This 3 + 1 program leads to a B.S. degree in Clinical Laboratory Science/Medical Technology and prepares the student for the National Certification examinations. It should be noted that any student wishing to transfer into the King’s Clinical Laboratory Science/Medical Technology program from another academic institution is required to complete the sophomore and junior level science courses at King’s College.

The Clinical Laboratory Science/Medical Technology program requires more than 120 credits for eligibility for the degree, which is awarded at the completion of the professional phase in August of each year.

Students who complete a baccalaureate degree in biology, chemistry, or general science and who have the appropriate prerequisites may also apply to any school of Medical Technology approved by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists for study in preparation for the certification examination.
