Pre-Medical Technology

Are you interested in working in a medical laboratory environment, performing tests to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease? Our pre-medical technology page contains useful information to prepare you to enter a medical technology program. 

Things to keep in mind regarding pre-medical technology at CWU: 

  • Pre-medical technology is not a major. Pre-med tech is a set of prerequisite courses taken along with your major that prepare you to enter a medical technology program.
  • Medical technologists search for data on a patient's health, and therefore must work quickly and carefully to provide the physician with the correct data to accurately diagnose diseases. 
  • Students should major in a scientific field such as chemistry, microbiology, or biology. It is encouraged that students check the requirements of individual schools and seek advising early to ensure that the proper coursework is being taken and ensure on-time graduation.
