Medical Laboratory Science (MLSK)

USP Codes are listed in brackets by the 2003 USP code followed by the 2015 USP code (i.e. [QB<>Q]).

4840. Laboratory Education Methodology. 1. This course provides an overview of education methodology and issues related to roles as educators in the clinical laboratory profession. Course topics and assignments include pedagogy, curriculum design, assessment and accreditation. Major educational responsibilities for clinical laboratory professionals relating to continuing education, competency assurance, certification and licensure will be addressed. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4850. Clinical Research Design. 2. A course in research design methods commonly used in clinical research. Emphasis is on research design, process, measurement, regulatory issues, and ethics, as used by investigators. The focus is to equip students with knowledge and skills necessary to critically examine professional literature, methodology and ethical considerations that influence research design. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4860. Laboratory Management. 3. [{none}<>COM3] This course introduces students to laboratory management systems, testing, reimbursement, accrediting/regulatory issues, finances, information systems, QA/QC improvement and supervisory roles in the clinical laboratory. Emphasis is on management and communication skills needed to work successfully as entry-level professionals in a health care setting. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4870. Advanced Clinical Chemistry. 4. This course is designed to introduce students to advanced topics in clinical chemistry in relation to instrumentation, diagnostic testing and its correlation to disease states, and method correlation and validation. Students will demonstrate the ability to describe principles and applications required for the entry level laboratory scientist. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an AS degree in MLT within the past 5 years.

4880. Advanced Hematology: Erythrocytes. 2. Advanced hematology principles and techniques prepare students for practice in the clinical laboratory. This course will focus on advanced topics of hemtology, focusing on normal and abnormal erythrocytes in relation to assessment, and disease correlation. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an AS degree in MLT within the past 5 years.

4890. Professional Career Paths and Review. 2. This Medical Laboratory Sciences program prepares students for a variety of graduate degrees and careers in laboratory medicine. This course is designed to help students investigate career and education opportunities after becoming a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist and also provides students with a cumulative review to ensure mastery of content. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an AS degree in MLT within the past 5 years.

4981. Advanced Clinical Practicum - Hematology. 3. Advanced hematology principles and techniques prepare students for practice in the clinical laboratory. Topics include leukopoiesis, leukemias, lymphomas, hemostasis, coagulopathies, urinalysis and body fluids. Laboratory will focus on abnormal smears, normal and leukemic bone marrow evaluations, and coagulation mixing studies, factor assays and body fluids related to clinical disease states. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4982. Advanced Clinical Practicum - Molecular. 3. Principles of molecular technology used in clinical laboratories. Laboratory experiences include cytogenetics, nucleic acid extraction, hybridization, detection, amplification, sequencing, microarrays, and in-situ hybridization. Emphasis is on the areas of the clinical laboratory that use molecular techniques related to genetics, oncology, infectious disease, and identity testing for forensic and transplant purposes. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4983. Advanced Clinical Practicum - Immunohematology. 3. Principles of immunology theory, blood group systems, genetics, and immunohematology techniques. Procedures including evaluation of blood samples, pretransfusion compatibility testing, and transfusion reactions are studied. Serologic testing and problem-solving in antibody identification and complex procedures are stressed. Laboratory emphasizes modern practices, resolution of compatibility problems and advanced antibody identification methods. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.

4984. Advanced Clinical Practicum-Microbiology. 3. Focus is on underlying mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis, host responses to infectious disease and clinical diagnosis procedures. Emphasis is on detailed mechanisms of infection, pathogenesis, and major discoveries and technologies in medical microbiology. Current issues in public and global health, epidemiology, bioterrorism, biotechnology and vaccination programs will be studied. Prerequisite: Medical Laboratory Technician (ASCP) certification or completion of an associate of science degree in medical laboratory technician within 5 years.
