What Will I Learn?

The Medical Technology B.S. is a New York State Clinical Laboratory Technologist licensure-qualifying program. Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester General Hospital, UPMC Chautauqua WCA Hospital (Jamestown, NY), and New York Methodist Hospital (Brooklyn, NY) have agreements to provide training for students who wish to pursue a career in medical technology/clinical laboratory work. Students spend the first three years taking basic science and general education classes at Roberts. All coursework must be completed before admission to clinical training.

Application for clinical training must be completed during the fall semester of the junior year. Acceptance to the clinical year will be based on 1) timely completion of the formal application for clinical training, 2) a minimum overall GPA of 3.00 (with preference given to those who have a GPA of 3.0 or greater in their science courses), and 3) an interview by the clinical lab. The selection process is competitive and the decision is made by the clinical lab in close consultation with the Department of Biological and Chemical sciences. Students not accepted to the clinical year have the option of completing a major in Biology.

Who Will I Meet?


Dr. Cynthia Davis, Professor of Biology, Medical Technology Program Director

We are pleased to have Dr. Davis as a part of our faculty. She received her Ph.D. in Biology from Dartmouth College. She loves science and how the world fits together! Her research interests are in genetics, specifically saccharomyces cerevisiae (also known as brewers or bakers yeast) and the gene Slk19. Dr. Davis along with current students are studying the proteins functioning in the pathway responsible for correct segregation of chromosomes during meiosis.

She is also a member of the Genetics Society of America and The American Society for Cell Biology. To read more about Dr. Davis, click here.
