The Clinical Laboratory Technology Program serves to provide students with career and economic opportunities in laboratory medicine. This will be accomplished by facilitating the development of the individual’s knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become successful in the laboratory setting and meet the demands of technical growth.


Students learn to perform clinical laboratory procedures under the supervision of a qualified pathologist and/or clinical laboratory scientist. Classroom training is integrated with clinical experiences under the medical direction of cooperating hospitals. Graduation from this program allows students to take a national certification examination, which is necessary for clinical employment.
