SCC’s program includes principles and technical instruction in the areas of hematology, clinical chemistry, clinical microbiology, transfusion services (blood banking), immunology/serology, parasitology, urinalysis, and clinical microscopy. Students obtain additional laboratory experiences and learning opportunities within hospital and clinic laboratories.
Clinical education experiences for students enrolled in the program are designed to correlate theory with supervised clinical experience in an organized setting. Clinical education experiences occur during the last semester of the program, are scheduled by program faculty in cooperation with clinical affiliates during normal working hours of the clinical affiliate, and occur primarily during the normal work week (Monday - Thursday). No stipends are paid to students.
Due to the demand for clinical sites, students will be required to complete some clinical education experiences outside the Lincoln area.
