Clinical Laboratory Science

The Clinical Laboratory Science program begins with three years of on-campus study in science, math, and Liberal Education. It concludes with a fourth year of highly specialized training at a hospital school of clinical laboratory science accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Permission to apply for the competitive fourth year positions usually requires a grade point average of nearly 3.00. Clinical areas of study include hematology, chemistry, immunology, microbiology, immunohematology, and microscopy. Upon completion of the clinical year, students are eligible to take the National Registry Examination of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists and the National Certifying Examination of Medical Technologists.
