Program Description:

Dominican offers the only graduate Clinical Laboratory Sciences program in California. The Master of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences (CLS) with an emphasis in Molecular Diagnostics is a 30-unit, non-thesis program, designed for practicing Clinical Laboratory Scientists looking to become a leader in the clinical laboratory. Students who are not already CLS licensed or license-eligible pursue a Master of Science in Molecular Diagnostics. Students in the CLS program will be prepared to modify systems and procedures in an effort to make the clinical lab more efficient and cost-effective while still emphasizing the importance of obtaining accurate and reproducible patient results. Molecular diagnostic techniques covered by this program include nucleic acid and protein extraction, gel electrophoresis, PCR, fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis, and DNA and RNA microarray technology.
