The Program in Clinical Laboratory Science is a highly intensive course of study composed of didactic and clinical training.
Didactic courses are presented in clinical hematology and hemostasis, clinical chemistry, clinical microscopy, microbiology, immunohematology, immunology, molecular diagnostics, human tissue typing and management.
The course of study will offer the student the opportunity to obtain the necessary:
- Fundamental knowledge to enter the profession as a capable medical laboratory scientist.
- Highly specialized skills that will broaden career opportunities.
During the clinical phase of instruction, training and supervision are provided at leading clinical laboratories at sister medical institutions within the Texas Medical Center and beyond, in order that students may develop expertise in a variety of settings and experience the breadth of opportunity available to Clinical Laboratory Scientists.
Students entering the two-year track at the junior level take 69 semester credit hours towards their degree.
The semester-by-semester schedule includes all courses needed to graduate, but the sequence is subject to change.
