The M.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences program is designed for individuals who have an earned baccalaureate degree in science or other discipline with required prerequisite coursework.
The first year focuses on the clinical disciplines within the clinical laboratory (e.g. Hematology, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology, Immunohematology etc.), combining theory of disease diagnosis and laboratory diagnostic techniques with hands-on practice in manual as well as automated procedures.
The additional courses outside the profession courses are intended to provide the student with the tools (statistics, proposal writing) to complete the capstone project and to excel in technical or supervisory positions.
The second year of the program provides additional training in the clinical laboratories of hospitals and clinics in the Capital Region. The additional course work builds an expertise in the molecular diagnostic techniques.
This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clincial Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
