HCS 110

Introduction to Medical Laboratory Procedures

Students will be introduced to the professions of Medical Assisting (CCMA), Phlebotomy (CPT), and Patient Care Technician (CPCT) by studying the theory and skills necessary to function in a medical lab setting. Theoretical applications will focus on the entire life span, including health, health promotion, wellness, and illness. Students will apply these concepts in the college lab, including phlebotomy, preparing for and assisting with procedures, performing point of care testing and microscopy, and following laboratory safety standards. Students are required to practice selected skills with each other during the laboratory portion of this course. Pre- or Co-requisite: MET 111
