After taking some time off to raise my children, I am now a consultant for Atlanta schools regarding health education for young men and women in Middle School and High School. Medical Technology is a wonderful springboard for an array of areas besides the clinical lab. I am considering getting my teacher certification for secondary level science courses. So many doors are open with our level and diversity of education."

    I got my NC teacher certification for middle school science and taught 6-9 grades for several years and taught courses at the local community college in lab science and medical terminology. The program was a great background for careers other than strictly lab. Thanks UNC/Duke!!" 10/2009
  • Kenneth Hill ('74) hillk@sysmex.net "My degree in Medical Technology proved invaluable to my career--initially as technologist/chief technologist in the Clinical Chemistry Lab at UNC Hospitals and at the University of Virginia Medical Center.  Opting for a career in medical equipment sales in 1980, my training in medical technology has given me a definite edge as I work with laboratories nationwide in providing them with the most highly technological and cost effective solutions for their needs." 6/2008
