If you are interested in the technological aspects of biosciences, DePaul's Allied Health Technologies program will provide you with a strong foundation in biology, chemistry and physics, with a specific focus on scientific technology.
The Allied Health Technologies program offers three concentrations: clinical laboratory sciences (CLS), nuclear medicine technology (NMT) and radiation therapy (RT).
In the CLS concentration, you will spend four years completing requirements at DePaul, followed by a one-year internship at a hospital associated with DePaul (currently Evanston Hospital). After completing your degree, you will be eligible for national board certification by the Board of Registry of the American Society for Clinical Pathology and/or the National Certification Agency for Medical Lab Personnel.
The NMT and RT concentrations require you to complete three years of study at DePaul and one year at an internship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. NMT graduates are eligible for national ceritifcation by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. RT graduates are eligible for national certification by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
As an Allied Health Technologies student, you will take courses in:
