MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY/MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE INTERNSHIP PRO
Transcript of MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY/MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE INTERNSHIP PRO
Consistent to CHED memorandum order # 14 series of 2006, Appendix A: General Guidelines for the Medical Technology Internship Program. The followings provisions are adopted as the Arellano University College of Medical Laboratory Science Medical Technology Internship Program
The Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science Internship Training Program of the Arellano University College of Medical Laboratory Science (AU-CMLS) is envisioned as a global academic enterprise, recognized not only in the Philippines, but throughout the world as demonstrated by the AU-CMLS students’ competence, teamwork, and initiative and their ability to respond to patient care in a health care delivery system.
The mission of the Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science Internship Training Program of the AU-CMLS is to provide quality training of Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science students; and help them become humane and competent Medical Technologists/Laboratory Scientists who are globally competitive and committed to serve the health needs of the community.
The AU-CMLS Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science Internship Training Program is in the fourth year level of the Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science program. It is an intensive practical and theoretical training in the different sections in the clinical laboratory namely, Clinical Chemistry, Hematology, Immunohematology (Blood Banking), Immunology, Serology, Microbiology, Urinalysis and Other Body Fluids (Clinical Microscopy), Parasitology, Histopathology/Cytology and other emergent technologies. It also emphasizes the development of proper value system.
