Offered by Health Science Programs

Pre-Clinical Laboratory Science

The following three year pre-professional program is based on the requirements for admission to the Clinical Laboratory Science Program in the School of Allied Health Professions at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. A minimum 77 semester hours of pre-clinical laboratory science courses must be completed at UNK. The Clinical Laboratory Science Program at UNMC is an 11 month program. Students will receive a Bachelorís Degree from UNMC upon completing of the clinical training.

While other clinical laboratory science programs may be similar, the student is urged to contact the specific school of his or her choice to determine any suggested variations of this pre-professional schedule. Students must apply for positions in clinical laboratory science programs and the competition is intense. Therefore admission is never guaranteed.
