Curriculum
 

Students are admitted to the Clinical Laboratory Sciences Program in May and January of each year. A total of 76 credits must be completed for an Associate in Science degree.

The required general education courses are an important part of the program. Since admissions are highly competitive, it is strongly recommended that you take the core courses, particularly the natural science courses, and ENC 1101 before you are admitted to the program. Your success at the courses you take before applying to the program will improve your chances of being admitted, although taking these courses in advance does not guarantee admission.

Students may choose the full-time or the part-time option. Course content is sequential, and students should plan to enroll in all Medical Laboratory Technology courses in the order and during the terms indicated in the following curriculum.

* Students must meet the requirements of the clinical facility assigned and succesfully complete all pre-requisite courses for the discipline.

CGS 1060 Introduction to Microcomputer Usage** - This course must be satisfied for completion of the Associate in Science Degree. Course satisfaction can be accomplished through examination or by successful class attendance in the course. HSC 0003 – Introduction to Health Care must be successfully completed prior to applying to the program.

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent https://ibrinc.com/mdc/select and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
