Pre-Medical Technology students must fulfill the general education and the Pre-Medical Technology program requirements and have a minimum of 90 college hours (3 + 1 program). Students may also elect to complete a B.S. degree in Health Sciences (120 hours, 4 + 1 program). Students do not have to be admitted to the University-based Pre-Medical Technology program but should seek advisement from the Medical Technology faculty in the School of Allied Health Sciences .
The clinical training portion of the Medical Technology program, which involves 30 credit hours, can only be achieved at an accredited hospital in affiliation with Southwestern Oklahoma State University .
Acceptance of the student for the hospital-based clinical training program is the option of the hospital program. Student applications are required and must follow specified guidelines. Minimum requirements for application require an overall grade point average (OGPA) of 2.0, but some programs require an OGPA of 2.5. The students must have a personal interview with hospital program officials. After all applications and interviews have been completed, the students will be "matched" to a training hospital for their professional clinical training.
The Professional Clinical Training program at the hospital is 12 months. The students will enroll in clinical courses each semester of the year - 12 hours in the fall and spring semesters and six hours for the summer semester. Final letter grades for all 30 hours will not be posted until the total clinical program has been completed.
Interested students should contact the School of Allied Health Sciences .
