Clinical assistants are members of the health care delivery team. They perform a variety of duties under the supervision of a laboratory scientist, nurse or other medical personnel. Duties may include specimen procurement and sample processing, basic laboratory testing, patient processing, basic technical nursing procedures and secretarial work. This one-year program includes an introduction to fundamental laboratory, office, and nursing skills. During the second semester, students train in clinical sites within the Marquette area. The first phase of the program allows students to gain proficiency in phlebotomy (obtaining a blood specimen) and become eligible for phlebotomy certification. The second phase expands into the multi-skilled areas so graduates are eligible for employment in a variety of health care settings.
