B.S. in Biomedical Technology

The Bachelor's program in Biomedical Technology (BSBT) allows students to explore the many facets of human health and disease with an emphasis on the contribution of diagnostic laboratory medicine to medical practice.

The Program provides a strong foundation in basic and clinical sciences, and in particular, offers excellent preparation for entry into a M.S. program in Physician Assistant Studies.

Incoming freshman students may take advantage of the joint degree program ACPHS offers with Albany Medical College (AMC) and apply for early assurance acceptance in the M.S. in Physician Assistant Studies program at AMC.

A number of recent ACPHS students have been accepted and enrolled in the joint degree program over the past several years. Others have graduated with their B.S. in Biomedical Technology degree and attended Physician Assistant Studies programs at other colleges and universities.

Graduates of the program interested in pursuing a different path will be equally qualified to obtain positions in the biomedical device industry in roles such as sales, research, and technical support.

Regardless of which direction you choose, the curriculum is designed to ensure that all graduates of the program are able to:

  • Interpret Clinical Laboratory Testing
  • Promote Public Health
  • Understand the Health Care System and the Role of the Medical Laboratory
  • Practice the principles of diagnostic thought process and evidence based medicine
