Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.


Students will spend 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday, receiving lecture, demonstration, observation and/or hands-on practice at a student laboratory or live clinical bench. Under the supervision of faculty or teaching technologists, students will have opportunities to work with state-of-the-art biomedical instrumentation and a diverse collection of clinical specimens. 

The program curriculum includes lectures, activities, and clinical rotations in:

  • Medical Microbiology 
  • Mycology and Parasitology 
  • Clinical Chemistry 
  • Clinical Immunology 
  • Clinical Hematology 
  • Clinical Hemostasis 
  • Immunohematology 
  • Urinalysis
  • Molecular Pathology
  • Flow Cytometry
  • Ancillary Testing
  • Current topics in Clinical Education and Laboratory Operations

Lectures will include synchronous and asynchronous delivery with expected after-hours study to complete homework assignments and prepare for exams.   Note:  MLS majors may be able to request exemption from some lectures pending review and approval of program faculty. (Further program details will be provided at the interview)

Clinical rotations will be hosted at campuses throughout all Corewell Health regions – East, West and South – in Michigan with primary residency at the larger medical centers.  Students will be given the opportunity to identify hospital campus preferences based on city of residence. 

Student progress will be evaluated via assignments, written and/or practical exams, competency checklists and performance evaluations.  Students must successfully complete each lecture course and laboratory rotation to satisfy the requirements of the program. Upon successful completion of the clinical program, graduates will receive a certificate of completion.

NOTE:  Further program details will be provided at the interview.  The interview will also provide ample time for answering additional questions from the applicant.
