HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (6/2/14) — The Biomedical Technology Systems program at Madisonville Community College was recently featured in the May 2014 edition of the nationally recognized magazine 24x7 for its holistically designed curriculum.
The BTS program trains students how to repair, maintain, and manage all types of medical devices, equipment, and systems utilized in various healthcare sectors. The holistic curriculum looks not only at the medical technology itself but also at the environmental “external” factors which impact the operation and performance of the technology over its entire life cycle.
Besides its holistic approach to the overall care and safety of medical equipment and systems, the MCC’s BTS program has several other unique features:
- It is the only public program of its type in Kentucky with only around 74 programs nationwide.
- It is highly accessible with its online delivery and one-day-a-week lab sessions.
- It has 6 embedded certificates in the Associate in Applied Science degree option that give graduates added employability status.
