Clinical Practicums and Affiliates

The Department of Medical Technology is associated with a number of facilities that provide clinical education for students. Several of the local clinical affiliates provide supervised phlebotomy experience for students in the fall of junior year. In the winter and spring terms of the senior year, the clinical affiliates provide supervised, structured experiences in the diagnostic laboratory disciplines of clinical chemistry, hematology, immunohematology (blood banking/transfusion services), microbiology/serology, and urinalysis. Senior students will generally participate in clinical practicum experiences at three affiliates, including a large medical center and community hospital settings.

While the clinical affiliates are located throughout the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, all are within a two-hour drive of the University. During the clinical practicum period (winter and spring terms of the senior year), students should plan for the additional expense of living off-campus at the clinical site for at least a four-week rotation when the commuting distance is excessive. Other expenses to consider for junior and senior practicums include transportation to the affiliate sites and uniforms.
