They possess a solid foundation in the clinical laboratory science principles, expertise and proficiency in performing laboratory procedures and professional attitudes and skills needed to provide critical laboratory information for patient diagnosis and treatment, prevention of disease and the promotion and advancement of quality health care.

Located within Ascension Michigan Laboratory Services, our Clinical Program provides exposure to a patient population and unique cases not offered by other facilities. No other program offers this kind of environment, experience or in-depth training necessary to be well versed in virtually all areas of the clinical laboratory sciences. You’ll be actively involved with exciting challenges available only from a health system of this caliber.

Our small class size, one-to-one instruction and state-of-the-art facilities provide you with the opportunity to gain practical experience while receiving your education. It’s a unique environment that exposes you to all areas of today’s sophisticated laboratory while working directly with physicians, laboratorians and other allied health professionals. We believe it’s important for you to actually practice what you learn in the classroom. That’s why we mix the classroom instruction with laboratory experiences. Having the opportunity to immediately perform procedures in the laboratory not only reinforces your education, but also provides you with a sense of what the real working environment is like.

After completing our program, you’ll have the experience, scientific knowledge and technical skills necessary for the required national certifying examinations.
