Our Clinical Laboratory Science Program is committed to providing high quality educational experiences that develop knowledgeable, skillful, and ethical professionals who will fulfill leadership positions and contribute to the growth and advancement of the health care community of our US-Mexican Border and Southwest region.
One such experience is participating in the Student Bowl competition which will take place on April 14-17, 2020 at the Texas Association of Clinical Laboratory Scientists Conference (TACLS) in Galveston, TX. This year, our students are determined to place first and make UTEP and El Paso proud. The TACLS Student Bowl (much like an academic decathlon contest) allows teams to face off in a series of questions and answers specific to laboratory science. The smartest students will win - and our UTEP team is up for the challenge!
Who are Clinical Laboratory Scientists?
We are the science behind the art of medicine and a crucial part of patients' care and diagnosis. Clinical Laboratory Scientists receive the patient specimens, analyze the specimens, interpret and report results. We are responsible for confirming the accuracy of test results and reporting laboratory findings to pathologists and other physicians. The UTEP CLS Program is nationally accredited* and offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Laboratory Science. Our Program is affiliated with eight clinical facilities in the El Paso area, two clinical facilities in New Mexico, and one in Tucson, AZ.
Our future alumni from CLS will work in:
- Blood Bank
