Clinical Laboratory Sciences Collaborative Program
Detect the abnormal cells that cause leukemia. Analyze the cardiac enzyme activity from a heart attack. Identify the DNA markers for genetic diseases.
This is the work of a clinical laboratory scientist.
Clinical Laboratory Scientists provide laboratory information and services needed for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. A degree in clinical laboratory science opens you to a wide range of careers in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, public health education, government and commercial laboratories, formal academic programs, and more.
Saint Peter’s University and Rutgers University offer a collaborative program leading to the Bachelor of Science in clinical laboratory sciences with a concentration in medical laboratory science.
Clinical laboratory science majors complete all pre-professional and general education requirements at Saint Peter’s University before beginning the 12 to 15 month (four semesters) of clinical/professional training at the Rutgers School of Health Professions and affiliated clinical/research facilities.
