Welcome to the CLS Program Portal
Clinical laboratory science, the study and practice of diagnostic laboratory medicine, is a dynamic health care profession. Clinical laboratory professionals provide 70% of the critical objective information for diagnosis, treatment and preventative health care. These individuals analyze body tissues and fluids using complex instrumentation, sophisticated techniques and specialized knowledge. http://www.ascls.org/
Welcome to the online clinical laboratory science program! Also, on behalf of the faculty, congratulations on your decision to enter into the exciting field of laboratory science. Did you know there are some exciting things happening in our profession? I encourage you to go to this website to learn more http://www.ascls.org/ . Our profession is always changing and one of the new terms you may hear is “medical laboratory scientist” instead of clinical laboratory science or medical technologist. I look forward to working with each of you as you progress through the curriculum and develop into the next generation of medical laboratory scientists. This program is accredited by:

Notes From the Director
*If you are going to miss a deadline due to illness or a special circumstance, you MUST contact the course instructor as outlined in the syllabus for each course PRIOR to missing the deadline to inform them of your circumstance. Extended illness will require documentation from a physician or clinic. Failure to call or provide documentation will result in a “zero” for missed assignments and exams.
*It is VERY IMPORTANT that you read the syllabus for each class. This will enable you to develop a weekly schedule of assignment due dates and understand the organization of each course. Please do not hesitate to contact me, Wade Redman firstname.lastname@example.org, Frank Mack email@example.com, or Lea Davidson firstname.lastname@example.org (or call 806 743-4473) if you have questions or concerns. In addition if you have questions regarding preceptorship please contact Jacquie Chestnutt email@example.com, or for immunizations contact Dina Barhorst firstname.lastname@example.org.
