Marquette University invites high school students to participate in our Clinical Laboratory Science Young Scholar Program. This program gives you the opportunity to work in a simulated clinical laboratory setting under the guidance of certified professionals. By attending two Saturdays, completing the online module, and sucessfully passing all coursework, you will earn one college credit. This credit can be applied directly to your transcript, either at Marquette or wherever you choose to attend college.
Career options for clinical laboratory scientists are expanding. In fact, the number of job openings right now far exceeds the number of certified graduates entering the field nationwide.
Parents of participating students are invited to attend a one-hour seminar at the beginning of the program that explains diagnostic medicine and the role of the clinical laboratory scientist in the health care arena.
