Course Overview

In addition to clinicians, nurses and patient support personnel, the medical laboratory serves a vital role in the healthcare system, providing clinicians with excellent diagnostic tests. Specimens must first be collected and assessed for quality before being analyzed by the clinical laboratory; this is the essential role of the Clinical Laboratory Assistant/ Phlebotomist.
