The minor in Clinical Hematology gives you the option to select just that one area of medical laboratory science to study. The graduate of the entire clinical laboratory science program is called a "generalist" and can practice in the areas of clinical biochemistry, hematology, transfusion services, immunology and clinical microbiology. The Hematology minor allows study in hematology, without taking all of the program courses. It includes general principles of human physiology and clinical laboratory operation as well as hematology topics such as blood cell formation, anemias, leukemias, coagulation disorders, etc. You can complete the minor by taking courses offered on campus.
Pre-requisites include one year of general chemistry. Grades of C or better are required in all courses applicable to the minor. Prior approval to enroll in the courses is required as there are a limited number of seats. Additional details and the required form are provided using the link below. The form should be submitted by July 1 for approval to enroll in fall classes. See the checklist.
