Coordinator: Douglas W. Morrison, 973/353-1268

A major in clinical laboratory sciences (CLS) leading to the bachelor of science degree is offered jointly with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Health Related Professions in Newark (UMDNJ-SHRP) and the Department of Biological Sciences at Rutgers-Newark. The major is offered at NCAS. Students graduating with degrees in CLS become members of health care teams contributing to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. CLS majors are readily employed in a variety of health care, industrial, governmental, and educational settings and also may elect graduate programsin a number of specializations, such as basic and applied science, medical school, and dental school.

Clinical laboratory science majors take three years of course work at Rutgers-Newark. They must apply to the senior clinical year at UMDNJ-SHRP through a separate admissions process. Admission requirements for the senior clinical year include a cumulative grade-point average of 2.75 and grades of C or better in all prerequisite core science courses taken at Rutgers-Newark. Once admitted, students register for their senior clinical year at UMDNJ-SHRP specializing in cytotechnology, or medical laboratory science.
