We welcome your interest in Cleveland Clinic's School of Medical Laboratory Science.

Laboratory technologists play a vital role in the care provided to our patients. Our
technologists perform more than 11 million tests a year, helping to diagnose disease and
monitor therapy. Health promotion and disease prevention are also key to the mission of the
Cleveland Clinic and our laboratories provide data that helps patients maintain the benefits
of good health.
Cleveland Clinic is a health care system with a large downtown campus in Cleveland, 8
regional community hospitals, and numerous family health centers and physician office
practices. Our diverse laboratories serve patients at all of these facilities. The majority of
laboratory tests are performed at the main, downtown campus laboratory, and it is here that
the School of Medical Laboratory Science is almost entirely based.
In our program students learn blood banking, clinical chemistry, hematology,
immunopathology, and clinical microbiology. Skills basic to performance of accurate
laboratory tests are acquired through individualized and group training at the bench. The
laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and technology and students
have exposure to many esoteric tests not performed routinely in most laboratories. Through
the lecture series students gain understanding of the bodys normal state, as well as, disease
processes. This knowledge helps them correlate the laboratory results to the care of the
individual patient.
Communication of results and test interpretation to nurses, physicians, and other care
providers is a critical component of quality patient care. Written and oral communications are
essential skills that are developed through the program. Although the entry-level technologist
performs few management functions, coursework in leadership and administration is
incorporated to enable technologists to understand their role in the overall function of the
laboratory and to help them advance to leadership positions in the future.
Ours is a rapidly changing profession. At Cleveland Clinic we are committed to adapting to
advancing technologies and medical practices. As a student in our program or a technologist
in our laboratory you will have many opportunities to apply your knowledge and experience
personal growth. Opportunities for continuing education and personal development are
abundant.
The laboratory sciences need dedicated professionals to provide timely, accurate, and
relevant laboratory data as part of the overall care of patients. At Cleveland Clinic you will be
part of a team of providers devoted to improving the quality of human life. We hope you will
consider our program and look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

College of Medical Technology & Pharmacy


We are building a community where knowledge and research will be greatly enhanced as a
contribution to mankind. Dean Tzarita Marie P. Mayo

The College of Medical Laboratory Science and Pharmacy provides students the best possible educational
experience which will give them necessary measures in preparation for chemistry, microbiology, hematology,
molecular diagnostics, pharmaceutical works and other related disciplines.
Underscoring the 21st century challenges, the colleges team of certified medical technologists, clinical
laboratory instructors and pharmacists strategically facilitate the learners unique medical and scientific
capabilities through the courses innovative curriculum.
The rich history of the college does not only contribute to the learning, analysis, diagnosis and research of
treatment of diseases, but it also prepares its students in entering the highly-skilled laboratory profession
focused on the analysis of patient specimens and the diagnosis and monitor disease process to be able to
contribute to overall wellness of their own communities, both here and abroad.
Since its inception, the colleges increasing significance in the assessment of successful medical
procedures, use of additional complex instruments and improved laboratories equate the increasing
demands in the field of Medicine.
In adherence to the University of Luzons leadership principle Perecias y Valias (skills and values), the
general management, teachers and its students work closely with clinical pathologists, physicians and other
health care providers to provide accurate and timely information and to assist in the treatment of patients for
the best possible outcome.
This way, the graduates individually realize their full potentials as they face real-life undertakings which will
only make them competent operators and partners in clinical laboratory work, academic research, public
health, teaching and the pharmaceutical industry.
Also, the academic importance of this course will be continuously enriched and innovated for future success
in the field of medical technology, including preparation for the national certification exams. Furthermore,

medical technology-pharmacy students will also foster a strong, research oriented scientific framework by
carrying out the pride of a true Luzonian.
Looking beyond the schools campus and regardless of what the future holds, the College of Medical
Laboratory Science and Pharmacys commitment to the success of each student will never change.
