Program summary

The Bachelor of Science Program in Medical Technology was started in 2011. The program has consistently revolutionized its curriculum and learning process by incorporating competency-based learning and outcome-based learning. This served the important goal of producing well-rounded medical technologists who are eager for lifelong learning and can thrive in a constantly changing world, improving the quality and standard of education. The Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology is intended to instill in graduates the values of professional competence and a good attitude necessary for successful work in clinical laboratories, as well as to prepare them for careers in medical technology and health-related sciences. After completing an initial program of studies in basic science, the students will study a variety of medical technology and health-related sciences disciplines, including Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology, Clinical Microscopy, Immunology, Hematology, Transfusion Medicine, Molecular Biology, and Community Medical Technology. The Bachelor's degree in Medical Technology has been improved and developed at least every five years based on globalization, market demand, and regulation from related organizations like the Medical Technology Council and Burapha University. In accordance with Burapha University policy and AUN-QA, OBE was a major part of the most recent curriculum for 2021. The eight PLOs were developed to be responsive to all inputs and stakeholders and to focus on both general and specialized skills and knowledge. The curriculum has received certification from the Medical Technology Council and Burapha University. Thai Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, and AUN-QA have been used as tools to develop curricula and achieve academic excellence.

Program Philosophy
“Administering education that focuses on inculcating the learners through practice-based learning, as for student to gain experience in real-work environment, to be competent persons who are able to cope with the changes of the world, to engage in social accountability, and to be life-long leaeners” is the educational philosphhy of Burapha university.
