DEGREE

Graduates of the Department of Clinical Laboratory Science earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Laboratory Science.

Curriculum

During the first two years of the program, students complete pre-requisite courses in biology and chemistry and well as foundations curriculum requirements. In the professional phase (junior and senior year) students complete on campus courses in each of the major clinical laboratory science disciplines (hematology, clinical chemistry, microbiology, immunohematology) as well as clinical rotations in each of these departments at a clinical facility. Current clinical affiliates include Vidant Medical Center, Greenville; CarolinaEast Medical Center, New Bern; Nash Health Care System, Rocky Mount; Wilson Medical Center, Wilson; Lenoir Memorial Hospital, Kinston; Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, Fayetteville; and Wayne Memorial Hospital, Goldsboro.
