MT 400 Senior Medical Technology Seminar

2 credits, Spring

Introduces the principles and practices of research design sufficient to evaluate published studies in the field of clinical laboratory sciences such that research results can be applied to practice. Students will understand how a research study is conceptualized, implemented by the researcher, and disseminated in published format to peers. Working collaboratively with a team leader or manager within the clinical laboratory, students perform a literature search and/or research on an assigned study or project, prepare a professional poster, and present their findings in an oral presentation. Because health professionals are also involved in teaching patients, colleagues and/or students, the student will demonstrate an understanding of educational methodologies and their application to clinical education.
