Clinical Laboratory Science Minors
The Department of Clinical Laboratory Science offers four minors in specific disciplines within the field of clinical laboratory science. Contact the Department of Clinical Laboratory Science for advice on choosing an appropriate minor for your career goals. The clinical microbiology, clinical chemistry and hematology, and the hematology and immunohematology minors carry national certification eligibility and employment options within large hospital and reference laboratories, while the clinical laboratory science generalist minor does not provide certification eligibility or employment options but is intended to provide pre-medical students with a knowledge base in the use of laboratory tests for patient diagnosis and disease management. All minors except the clinical laboratory science generalist minor require formal admission by the department. As student laboratory space is limited, minors are admitted after CLSC majors (see CLSC web site for details). Any student pursuing a minor in the department must meet all general education and cognate course requirements as required for CLSC majors.
