Senior year or post graduation hospital clinical training program is required.

In addition, students considering other professional programs or graduate school are encouraged to take calculus, physics, and other possible electives that suit their future needs. See the program advisor for details.

Senior year or post-graduation hospital clinical training program is required to practice in the profession . The comple­tion of the clinical training program is a specific degree requirement of the Clinical Laboratory Science Profession. Students choosing the 3 + 1 program option and successfully completing the Clinical Training Program will receive a waiver for the Career-Related Experience general degree requirement.

Full informa­tion on the CLS major and its administration can be obtained by contacting the program advisor Dr. Christine Bezotte, Clinical Laboratory Science program advisor, Kolker Hall, room 205, (607) 735-1852.

In addition to the required number of credits needed to complete the major, all students must also fulfill the general degree requirements in order to graduate.
