Correlating test results with disease states will be accomplished. 


Clinical Chemistry I Laboratory- 5 class sessions

Teaches the general laboratory principles and specific basic instrumentation methodologies used in basic clinical chemistry analysis. After review of laboratory math, and a reintroduction to quality control and quality assurance, the student will be introduced to variables of the pre-analytical phase, characteristics important to quality lab technique and safety. Correlating test results with disease states will be accomplished.


Clinical Chemistry II Lecture10 class sessions

Teaches relationships between the endocrine system and analytes assayed in the clinical laboratory, including tumor markers, therapeutic drugs, and compounds studied in toxicology. The student will be introduced to vitamins assayed and correlate their clinical significance. The student will correlate liver, kidney, and pancreatic function with test results and compare with states of health and disease. The function and laboratory analysis of various body fluids including effusions, spinal fluid, and synovial fluid will be included.

New MS Meets Clinical Lab Demand

Dominican University of California will launch a master’s program in Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) with an emphasis in Molecular Diagnostics in fall 2013. The program, which will be the only CLS master’s program in California, comes at a time when demand for trained clinical laboratory scientists is growing both in California and throughout the United States.
