ML 221 - Clinical Rotation II

Credit Hours: 2.0

Continuation of ML211.  This course requires students to complete a series of specialty rotations at designated clinical sites and to participate in discussions of related issues which will provide exposure to a variety of physical settings and current state-of-the-art instrumentation.  Students will have the opportunity to gain practical experience in collecting clinical samples and performing laboratory analysis of hematological, chemical, immunohematologic, histologic, immunologic or microbiologic test/parameters on clinical specimens using current instrumentation available at the clinical site.  Emphasis will be on actual performance of these procedures using skills which have been learned during the first three (3) semesters of the program.  Students are supervised and instructed at clinical sites by clinical site staff.  Students must successfully complete the rotation and submit, on time, the required clinical reports in order to successfully complete course requirements.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • perform laboratory analysis of hematology, chemistry, microbiology, coagulation, histology, and immunohematology tests/parameters on clinical specimens using current instrumentation available at each clinical site;
  • complete a written report, examination, or other site evaluation on instrumentation, methodologies and protocols encountered during each assigned hospital laboratory session, including general observations of laboratory operation;
  • review for the Clinical Laboratory Techncians-Americal Society for Clinical Pathology (CLT-ASCP) Board of Registry/NYS Licensure exam focusing on the major clinical areas using computer and/or written testing;
  • conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times;
  • complete specific exit requirements for each clinical laboratory at a satisfactory level;
