Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Technology:
Clinical Laboratory Sciences concentration
The B.S. in Biomedical Technology, like all programs at the
College, offers a liberal arts core that fosters personal
intellectual growth and a sense of professionalism.
As students advance in the Clinical Laboratory Sciences (CLS)
concentration, they will take courses dedicated to the clinical
laboratory sciences as well as work in clinical laboratories
around the region. The B.S. in Biomedical Technology degree program has clinical affiliations with
the following hospitals: St. Peter’s Hospital, Northeast Health, Ellis Hospital,
Seton Health, Albany Medical Center Hospital, and Stratton VA Hospital. In addition,
the College participates in an academic affiliation with Sage College of Albany.
The Clinical Laboratory Science program is fully accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS), 5600 N. River Rd., Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018-5119 (email@example.com, 773-714-8880).
Through classroom and clinical laboratory experiences, students
will develop the skills to build a comprehensive picture of a

The opportunities open to graduates are many. The program prepares
students for careers in hospital laboratories, reference laboratories,
or research institutions. In addition, students may pursue careers in the laboratory
diagnostic, health care or pharmaceutical industry. Graduates also are well prepared
for entrance into graduate, medical, dental, veterinary, and law school programs.
