Overview

Starting in first year, students in the Medical Laboratory Science (Honours) program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and get hands-on experience in the simulation laboratories. As theoretical knowledge expands, so does experiential knowledge. In fourth year, students will be placed in a diagnostic medical laboratory for the final two practicum semesters where they will work under the supervision of a medical laboratory technologist and perform increasingly complex procedures on human specimens. Clinical placements give students hands-on practice, experience in different work environments and the opportunity to network with potential employers.

Although some exceptional circumstances may be considered, practicum sites are assigned on a random basis; therefore, students may be placed in any affiliated site within the province of Ontario. Students are responsible for any costs associated with relocation.
