Clinical Laboratory Science
"Early on, Upper Iowa University placed me in a job-shadowing experience in a small nearby hospital's laboratory. This experience not only gave me insight into what it is like to work in a small clinical laboratory, but also began to lay the framework of some of the knowledge that I would need to know. I am extremely appreciative of all the work, efforts, and time that my instructors at UIU put in, toward preparing me for the clinical laboratory science (CLS) program at the Mayo Clinic."
