Medical Technology 161

Medical Technology provides an overview of the current technologies used within the medical profession and also surveys the occupational opportunities available to students who may pursue a position within this field. This laboratory course emphasizes competence in performing medical tests including surgery, radiology, forensics, dissection, sterile technique, microscopy, and careful laboratory measurement. In addition, medical terminology is an important aspect of this course. Presentations by medical professionals and field trips to local hospitals and medical laboratories help connect theory to practice. In addition to high school credit, one hour of tuition-free college level science credit may also be obtained by juniors/seniors upon successful completion of this course. (An application fee of $25 is required if students elect to receive college credit.) This course fulfills the science graduation requirement.

Prerequisite:
