The clinical laboratory technology (CLT) program prepares individuals
for rewarding professional careers that combine medicine and science.
Students learn to perform diagnostic analyses using state-of-the-art
laboratory equipment, interpret test results, and consult with
physicians in determining and monitoring necessary treatment for
patients. The program integrates general education and professional
courses with hands-on experiences in a variety of clinical lab
settings. Online education is combined with on-campus labs to prepare
students with the technical skills needed to work in the following
laboratory departments: hematology, microbiology, chemistry, blood
bank, immunology, microscopy and phlebotomy. Upon completion of the
associate degree, students are eligible to sit for a national
certification exam offered by the American Society of Clinical
Pathology (ASCP).

The clinical laboratory assistant (CLA) program leads to a basic
vocational certificate and provides students with the skills
necessary to collect and process specimens, prepare slides and
cultures, and perform point-of-care testing procedures. This program
is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical
Laboratory Sciences(NAACLS).
