Medical Technologies

Bridgewater College has an agreement with Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, Virginia. A similar agreement is in place with Augusta Health in Fishersville, Virginia. These hospitals are accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS). This agreement specifies three years of undergraduate study including required science courses and the general education component. After successfully completing a fourth year of study at the medical technology school of either of these two hospitals, the student is awarded a Bachelor of Science degree from Bridgewater College. Once this program is completed, the student is eligible to sit for a national exam, sponsored by the American Society for Clinical Pathology. This will certify the student as a Medical Laboratory Scientist. The alternative is to take the required courses specified for that emphasis over four years, graduate from Bridgewater, and go on to any accredited Medical Technology program in the United States.

In addition to the courses listed for the biology major, the required courses are: Biology 314 (Human Physiology), Biology 400 (Microbiology), Biology 410 (Immunology), Chemistry 305, 306 (Organic Chemistry).
