This course is designed to give students experience in performing work in a specialty and/or research laboratory including but not limited to those in advanced techniques, rural, commercial, and public health laboratories. It will prepare Clinical Laboratory Sciences graduates for pursuing alternate careers such as research scientists in industrial and basic science laboratories. The student will be given the opportunity to: 1) compare and contrast the analytic techniques required in these settings with the more typical laboratory facility; 2) develop advanced techniques which are unique to the type of facility involved; 3) acquire more extensive expertise and knowledge base in an area of special interest to the student; and 4) become familiar with current special techniques which may reflect standard practice in the near future.
