Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Clinical laboratory scientists utilize a wide variety of sophisticated equipment and skills to perform tests that analyze specimens to produce data for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease. Many of the same tests are used for organ transplants, therapeutic drug monitoring, crime investigation, genetic studies and research. The program now offers three specializations (Forensic Medical Diagnostics, Laboratory Infor­mation Systems and Clinical Cytogenetics) within its traditional clinical laboratory curriculum. A double major in clinical laboratory sciences and biology is available.
