The primary mission of the training program is to prepare qualified clinical laboratory scientists with the skills, knowledge, and attributes needed to provide patients with the most reliable laboratory results, which is utilized to provide accurate test results used in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.

We thrive to graduate technically competent clinical laboratory scientists, who possess independent judgement, problem solving skills and critically assess the validity of clinical laboratory results.

The extensive scientific knowledge and laboratory skill developed through the training program will provides the student with a distinct advantage of engaging in performing high complexity laboratory testing in the areas of clinical chemistry, hematology, blood banking, microbiology, molecular diagnostics, cytogenetics, immunology/serology, urinalysis and body fluids.

Due to continued growth and demand for qualified clinical laboratory scientists, we expect our graduates to have employment at our labs by the time they obtain their California licensure.
