MT 101 will introduce students to the field of Medical Technology, also called Clinical Laboratory Technology or Medical Laboratory Science. The professional laboratory scientists perform tests and procedures on human body fluids and tissues to determine health and diagnose diseases. Students enrolled in MT 101 will have the opportunity to visit local hospital laboratories to observe medical technologists in various specialty areas (examples may include: blood banking, public health, clinical microbiology, etc.). Students will also meet MT Senior Students, who, under faculty supervision, will discuss current topics in medical technology and demonstrate laboratory experiments with universal precautions, safety and procedures. Open to all students who are interested. Elective credit only; does not fulfill any requirement.
This course is intended for students who do not plan to major in programs that require calculus courses. The aim of this course is to expose students to the utility and beauty of mathematics, and strengthen their quantitative and analytical skills. The material is organized as a series of independent modules exploring various topics in modern mathematics, its real-world applications, and directions of current research. Topics of the modules are selected at the discretion of the course instructor. This course fulfills the Math and Quantitative Reasoning requirement of the UB Curriculum.
