Clinical Laboratory Science

Students may only complete the first three years of this program at IU Kokomo

The clinical laboratory scientist is a member of the laboratory team in diagnosis and research who performs many of the tests on tissue and blood that physicians need to treat diseases properly. The first three years of the clinical laboratory science curriculum are designed to provide a broadly based background in chemistry and the biological sciences, as well as an opportunity to elect courses from the humanities and social and behavioral sciences. The fourth year is spent in the clinical laboratory at the IU Medical Center. Selection of the fourth-year students will be made by the faculty of the clinical laboratory science program at IUPUI. Upon graduation, students are eligible to apply for examination for certification by the Board of Registry of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. Persons with the B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science find job opportunities in hospitals, clinics, research institutes, industry, and physicians’ offices.
