Medical Lab Technician Clinical Practicum (MLT231)

The clinical practicum is the capstone experience for the MLT students. It is the component of education where the student combines didactic/book learning with the important technical skills required in order to become a quality graduate and employee. The goal of the clinical practicum is to assist the MLT student in gaining the needed skills and competencies that are expected of an entry-level MLT employee. Student experiences in the clinical affiliate are directed by the clinical affiliate and the workflow. We have provided a minimum number for the various tests in order to ensure a level of standardization for each student’s clinical experience. The minimum number required for a test may be exceeded during the clinical rotation. If a student performs a test, but receives an unsatisfactory rating, the performance should not be counted toward the total.
