Clinical Rotation

BS in Medical Laboratory Sciences

In order to qualify for graduation, all Medical Laboratory Sciences majors must successfully complete a clinical rotation following completion of all coursework here at TWU.  This clinical rotation consists of both formal classes (hematology, parasitology, etc.) and hands-on laboratory training.

Texas Woman’s University does not own or host this clinical training, but rather has agreements with four affiliate institutions.  Students must apply and be accepted by one of these four institutions.  Placement is not guaranteed, and acceptance is solely up to the clinical institutions’ discretion.

Upon completion of student’s clinical rotation, the institution will send a transcript to TWU, and those hours will be applied to student’s previous coursework, and the student will graduate with a BS in Medical Laboratory Sciences from Texas Woman’s University. Clinical sites will also help students prepare for the certification exam.
