Overview

Career opportunities in Clinical Laboratory Science

Clinical Laboratory Science program within the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point professionals integrate biology, chemistry and medicine to provide the information necessary to maintain proper health and diagnose, monitor and treat diseases. They're employed at hospitals, clinics, public health laboratories, epidemiology, research, industry or forensic science. Three options are offered in UW-Stevens Point’s clinical laboratory science program: cytotechnology, histotechnology and medical technology.

Cytotechnology prepares you to serve as a detective, searching for signs of disease by distinguishing gross and subtle changes in human cells found in any tissue or fluid of the body.

Histotechnology allows you to prepare, process and stain tissue from surgery and autopsies for microscopic examination. Histologic techniques, histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, enzyme histochemistry, DNA probes and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques represent some areas of interest.

Medical technology focuses upon the clinical areas of microbiology, immunology, hematology, immunohematology, chemistry, molecular pathology, body fluid analysis and laboratory management. As a medical technologist you would provide the essential testing to diagnose, monitor and treat patients as well as develop test procedures, assure quality and conduct research.
