P-TECH Freshmen Visit Laboratory
On July 24, Laboratory Alliance welcomed the incoming freshman class (the third cohort of P-TECH students) to the Operations Center. Upon the students’ arrival, we provided them with an introduction to the clinical laboratory science profession as well as a discussion of the career outlook for licensed clinical laboratory professionals. Immediately following our introduction, students toured the lab—escorted by volunteer employees—as they rotated between five different stations representing some of the clinical laboratory disciplines (microbiology, chemistry, hematology, urinalysis/body fluids and cytology).
Laboratory Alliance’s career coaches, who are knowledgeable in their respective disciplines, designed and executed hands-on activities to engage students in relevant learning experiences.
