Senior:

Hospital-based Clinical Rotation (30-36 credits) which is approved by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), consisting
of: Clinical Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Phlebotomy, Transfusion Medicine, Renal Analysis.

**Strongly recommended; at least 2 Core courses should be completed during summers to allow for recommended course completions. A student must complete the Core and all required sequences at King's (90 credits in three years) before being eligible to enter the Hospital-based internship (fourth year).

SENIOR YEAR: (INTERNSHIP)
Students eligible for the fourth year, by virtue of having completed the preceding courses satisfactorily, may apply for admission to an A.S.C.P. certified school of Clinical Laboratories Science/Medical Technology. CLS/Med Tech internships are competitive and are dependent on the student’s academic record and success in the interview process. The hospital is responsible for final selection. The College does not, in accepting applicants into the program, in any way assure acceptance into this phase of the program. It is the responsibility of the student, not the College, to both seek and gain admittance into an internship program. However, the College will assist the student in every way toward these placements.
