Medical Diagnostics is a clinical-oriented science program that incorporates the basic science courses required for admission to medical school with medical-related courses that impact on the diagnosis and therapy of disease. This major prepares students who plan to pursue post-graduate study in health-related areas immediately upon graduation, including careers in medicine, dentistry, optometry, and physician assistant. The Medical Diagnostics curriculum provides a solid theoretical foundation for further study in the healthcare-related professions. Students learn the path physiology of diseases in five major areas of study: Clinical Chemistry, Hematology, Immuno hematology, Immunology, and Medical Microbiology. Students study detailed information about laboratory analysis and how laboratory data correlates to human disease. Medical Diagnostics students take most of the Medical Laboratory Science lecture courses but do not take the accompanying laboratory courses. This schedule allows students to take courses from other scientific disciplines to prepare for entry into post-baccalaureate studies.
