Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science
The Clinical Laboratory Science program includes three years of study at WSU and a one-year clinical laboratory curriculum accredited by the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education through the National Accrediting Agency of Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science. They also become eligible to take the national certification examination given by the Board of Registry for Medical Technologists (ASCP) and the CLS examination administered by the National Certification Agency for Laboratory Personnel.
In the Fall quarter of their preclinical year, students apply through the department for admission into the clinical laboratory program. Criteria used to determine admission include the academic record, letters of recommendation, and a personal interview. The number of positions in each class for the clinical year is limited.
