The Medical Technology and Surgical Technology programs are no longer provided at Hartford Hospital and are now run by our partner academic organizations:

Medical Technology

Medical Technologists (MT), or Clinical Laboratory Scientists (CLS), develop, perform, and evaluate clinical laboratory procedures, as well as analyze samples of blood, tissue, and body fluids. The tests they utilize may diagnose diabetes, monitor levels of immunosuppressive drugs in transplant patients, detect leukemia, or identify microorganisms in a wound infection, to name just a few.

Surgical Technology

Surgical TechnologySurgical Technologists are vital members of the surgical team, trained to fill two important roles: the “scrub” person and the “circulating” person. In either role, they must maintain a sterile environment, and observe and report vital data. Surgical Technologists can find employment in hospitals, surgeon’s offices, delivery rooms, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, and organ procurement teams.
