The pre-biomedical science research and medical technology program prepares students for entrance into the professional curriculum for medical technologists and biotechnologists.  Pre-Medical Technology is not a degree-granting program at the University of Maryland, College Park.

A degree program for a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology (B.S.-M.T.) generally follows a 2+2 model.  Students may complete two years of prerequisite courses at the University of Maryland, College Park and then apply for admission into a professional school to complete two years of professional coursework, which includes classroom, laboratory, and clinical education.

University of Maryland students also have the option of completing a four-year degree at College Park in their selected major, in addition to completing medical technology prerequisites, the 4 + 2 model.  In this model, students complete degree requirements in their chosen major, as well as the pre-medical technology prerequisites for entrance into a professional medical technology program.  The institution offering the program confers a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology degree on completion of the program.

Prerequisites may change; students are strongly encouraged to contact professional programs for the most current requirements.  The American Society of Clinical Pathologists and the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences maintain information about individual B.S.-M.T. program prerequisites.
