HLT 290 - Histology Clinical Experience

7 credits (PREREQUISITE: DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION)

Students master the procedures and hone their technical skills at a clinical site under the supervision of an experienced, certified (HT/HTL, ASCP) technician and in the equipped student laboratory under the guidance of the course professor. Clinical significance of laboratory procedures in diagnosis and treatment is applied. Students perform various routine duties (processing, sectioning, staining, decalcification, coverslipping, and gross tissue handling, etc.). This practical experience combined with techniques acquired in the student lab enables the student to become accustomed to applying histologic procedures to a scheduled arrangement of duties with established deadlines.
