The associate degree program in Clinical Laboratory Technology prepares students to enter the workforce as Clinical Laboratory Technicians. In this profession, graduates are responsible for performing routine clinical laboratory tests as the primary analysis making specimen oriented decisions on predetermined criteria, including a working knowledge of critical values. As part of the program, the students will complete a non-paid, supervised health-related practicum in a hospital lab setting.
This degree program consists of open enrollment courses (general education and division specific) and program specific courses with limited enrollment. The open enrollment courses may be taken prior to entry into the limited enrollment courses. To qualify for entry to limited enrollment courses, please see the Applicant Information packet located on the webpage.
Laboratory Technicians perform highly technical diagnostic tests in medical or scientific laboratories. Lab technicians might collect samples, study and perform tests on body fluids, chemical compounds and biological specimens. Lab techs use various types of lab equipment and complex computer programs to perform their tests.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
A credential by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) is required to practice as a Clinical Laboratory Technician.
