For those who love technology and have an interest in medicine, the field of medical technology can provide you with a fulfilling and lucrative career. With an associate's degree, you learn to use sophisticated equipment for ultrasound and x-rays; a bachelor's degree, however, may afford you greater opportunities in the field. A degree in medical technology could also qualify you for laboratory technician and technologist positions. Coursework generally includes core courses in the sciences--chemistry, biology, microbiology, immunology, hematology, and medical terminology--as well as specialized training in a specific field of interest. Those with medical technology degrees are in high demand in hospitals, health care facilities, diagnostic centers, and physician's offices. An online degree program in medical technology can provide the flexibility you need to study while you continue to work.
