The biomedical technology major at Rutgers–Camden offers two tracks, medical technology and cardiovascular perfusion, both in conjunction with Cooper University Hospital in Camden. During their first three years of 86 minimum credits, students fulfill their prerequisite courses for acceptance into a biomedical technology program under the guidance of the biomedical technology adviser. The required coursework provides students with a solid foundation in the sciences with exposure to classes in arts and humanities for a full liberal arts education. Application for admission to the affiliated school should be made at the beginning of the junior year.
For the medical technology track, students complete the remaining 12 months at the affiliated school of medical technology, with courses and practical experience in hematology, microbiology, blood banking, and chemistry. After successful completion of the four-year program, students receive the BS degree and are eligible to take board examinations for medical technologist certification.
For the cardiovascular perfusion track, students complete their fourth and fifth years at the affiliated school of cardiovascular perfusion with courses and practical experience in human anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, cardiovascular physiology and pathology, and perfusion technology. Upon successful completion of the five-year program, students receive the BS degree and are eligible to take board examinations for cardiovascular perfusionist certification.
