Clinical Laboratory Technology is a 6 semester associate of applied science degree program. Students learn to perform clinical laboratory procedures under the supervision of a qualified pathologist and/or clinical laboratory scientist. Classroom training is integrated with clinical experiences under the medical direction of cooperating hospitals. Graduation from this program allows students to take a national certification examination which is necessary for clinical employment.

Employment in doctors' offices and hospital laboratories requires a minimum of an associate degree in this field.
