MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY – TRANSFER PROGRAM
Associate of Science – 2 years
One of the first prerequisites is an interest in science, particularly in its relation to medicine. Hand in hand with this interest should go an
aptitude and liking for study. The field presents the opportunity to hold positions of responsibility and prestige and to satisfy the desire to be of
service to mankind.
Effective in 1962, three years of college became a prerequisite for training at an AMA-approved School of Medical Technology. Students may
enroll at GCC for two years and complete the third year at the transfer institution. At least 12 consecutive months must be spent at an approved
school of medical technology.

MEDICINE – TRANSFER PROGRAM
Associate of Science – 2 years
The courses listed below represent the most common courses required before admission to a school of medicine; however the requirements to
every medical program vary. It is important to check with your advisor as well as the potential schools of transfer for specific courses needed
before admission.
A student may apply to a school of medicine once the school’s program admission requirements are met, which typically includes a qualifying
score on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Admission to a medical school is very competitive. Although it may take only 2-3
years to complete the admission requirements, the trend is for accepted applicants to complete a Bachelor’s degree before entering the
professional school
