Dear Medical Laboratory Science Students, Every fall semester we look forward to a new group of students entering our undergraduate program. I extend a warm welcome to each of you on behalf of the Department of Pathology and the Division of Medical Laboratory Sciences. You have the advantage of studying at a major research university and medical school, while still enjoying the benefits of small classes. Our teaching facilities are outstanding and are complemented by a dedicated and knowledgeable faculty. We are eager and committed to help you be successful in your academic endeavors.

For second year students, clinical laboratory rotations provide stimulating educational experiences along with the most current technologies and concepts in laboratory science. You are one step closer to completing the program and becoming a certified medical laboratory scientist!

I wish you all the best this academic year and look forward to our associations.

Best Regards, Diana G. Wilkins, PhD., M.S., MT(ASCP) Professor and Division Chief Medical Laboratory Sciences Department of Pathology

Student Handbook – Medical Laboratory Science I. Introduction The purpose of this handbook is to present policies, guidelines, and information concerning the Medical Laboratory Science Program, Department of Pathology, University of Utah School of Medicine. It is intended for use by students, faculty, staff, and administration alike and is meant to complement rather than to replace or supersede the information given in the general University catalog.

II. Location The Medical Laboratory Science Program is housed in the School of Medicine, Department of Pathology. Within the Department of Pathology are five divisions: Anatomical, Clinical, Surgical, Cell Biology and Immunology, and Medical Laboratory Sciences.

III. Program Officials Dr. Peter Jensen, Chairman, Department of Pathology Diana Wilkins, Division Chief Justin Rhees, Program Director Takara Blamires, Associate Program Director Karen Brown, Clinical Coordinator IV. Faculty Takara Blamires, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, Assistant Professor Karen A. Brown, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, Professor Rebecca Buxton, MS, MT(ASCP), Professor Robert Durrant, MS, MLS(ASCP)CMSMCM, Assistant Professor Wales Nematollahi, PhD., MT(ASCP), Assistant Professor Justin Rhees, MS, MLS(ASCP)CMSBBCM, Assistant Professor Diana Wilkins, PhD, MS, MT(ASCP), Professor

Kristina Pierce, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, Laboratory Coordinator Erica M. Jessop, Administrative Assistant Several guest lecturers contribute to program excellence by providing lectures and/or laboratory support. Qualified medical laboratory scientists at clinical affiliates provide clinical instruction during the senior year rotations. These individuals participate in teaching-related workshops and many have adjunct clinical appointments at the University of Utah.

–  –  –

3. Provide the student with opportunities to accept the role of a professional, relate to those outside the medical community, grow personally, and adapt to change.

B. Meet the student's requirement for education in the profession of medical laboratory science as defined by accreditation standards.

1. Provide the student with the cognitive and psychomotor competencies to meet the entry requirements for the profession of medical laboratory science.

2. Provide the student with an environment in which those "affective" requirements of the professional medical laboratory scientist are developed.

3. Assist the student in developing techniques and attitudes for continuing education.

C. Provide opportunity for the student to become aware of the medical team and its responsibility for delivery of quality healthcare.

1. Provide the student with opportunities to grow professionally in developing ethical and moral attitudes regarding duties and responsibilities to the patient and which are consistent with a member of the healthcare team.

2. Encourage interaction with persons from other medical disciplines in cooperative efforts in areas of education and development of the team concept.

VI. Program Affective Objectives MLS students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. During or after

completing MLS courses, students will be able to accurately or positively:

A. Follow written and verbal instructions, as well as all program policies.

B. Adhere to established safety procedures.

C. Maintain attendance and punctuality for classes.

D. Display honesty, reliability and integrity when performing laboratory procedures.

E. Display ethical conduct during classes and in interactions with instructors, other students, patients, and additional members of the healthcare team.

F. Display interest and motivation for classes.

G. Maintain good interpersonal relationships with instructor(s), other students, patients, and additional members of the healthcare team.

H. Organize tasks and work area, and maintain a clean work area.

I. Accept constructive feedback given in the educational environment.
