and resource economics and policy. Program Advisor: S. Andy McCollum

Cooperative Program in Medical Technology

In cooperation with the St. Luke's Methodist Hospital School of Medical Laboratory
Science in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Cornell offers a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s
degree and to registration as a medical laboratory scientist/medical technologist. The
first three years of this program are taken in residence at Cornell College, where
candidates must complete 24 course credits with a minimum cumulative 2.5 grade point
average in all science courses and a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher. The
minimum requirements for admission to the program are BIO 141 (Foundations:
Cellular Biology), 142 (Foundations: Organismal Biology), 205 (Cell and Molecular
Biology), 315 (Genetics), 326 (Microbiology), and 329 or 330 (Human Anatomy and
Physiology I or II); CHE 121 and 122 (Chemical Principles I and II), 202 (Analytical
Chemistry) and 225 (Organic Chemistry I); and MAT 110 (Great Mathematical Ideas) or
STA 201 (Statistical Methods I). The fourth year is a full calendar year (12 months) and is
spent at St. Luke's Hospital under the supervision of the staff pathologist. Admission to
the St. Luke's program is not automatic but is competitive and based upon grade point
average, the recommendation of the program advisor, and the approval of the
Admissions Committee of St. Luke's.

The St. Luke's Hospital Medical Technology Program is approved by the Registry of
Medical Technologists of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, which is affiliated
with the American Medical Association. Candidates completing the program are
examined by the ASCP for registry and, if approved, may practice in most states in the
United States.

The curriculum in Medical Technology consists of one hour of lecture and seven hours of
practical experience per day in the following laboratory departments: urinalysis,
bacteriology, mycology, virology, parasitology, histology-cytology, chemistry, isotopes,
hematology, coagulation, serology, blood bank, and laboratory management. Upon the
completion of these courses with a grade point average of 2.0 or higher, the candidate
will be granted four course credits in biology, three course credits in chemistry, and one
unassigned credit. Program Advisor: Barbara Christie-Pope
