Science and clinical experience
I really liked the hands on learning, and the multiple clinical sights we
went to.
I liked all the hands on learning with the labs and clinical rotations.
I enjoyed the program. It prepared me well for the clinical rotation.
I liked how hand-on it was, that with every concept learned in lecture,
there was a lab to accompany it.
I liked that there was a lot of hands on training and we gained
experience inside and outside of the classroom.
The instructors were vary knowledgeable about topics and willing to
be flexable with class formats.
It was very challenging. So much to learn.

Feedback

I wouldn't change anything.
I would recommend starting the Clinical Microbiology class a few
weeks early. This would allow the class material to be completed in a
full 16 weeks, rather than the 12 weeks we had to complete the
material in.
I would add a short course on genetics and reccomend that students
take bio chem and A and P before entering the program
Too much information in too little time.
Lighten up the first semester load by having people complete A & P
and Biochemistry before being able to start the core classes.
I would have more available lecture time, or allow more lecture time in
laboratory so more questions can be asked.
I would change that we would meet more times for during the last
semester

Really helped with my confidence.
We had to take speech and written communication.
Yes.
I was able to do this prior to entering the program

I thought I was better at that when I started the program. Found out I
wasn't, but I am now
We learned laboratory mathematics
There were many mathmatical concepts that were applied to almost
every course

I love math!

This program as certainly given me a different outlook on day to day
life and how our environment affects our health
We learned how the theories we learned are used in the lab
The sequencing of the classes is in a good order. However the
program should require A&P and Organic Chemistry before someone
enters the rest of the program.

I have more than plenty of prior experience in this area
We had to learn how to work together

Yes

Demonstrate ability to value self and work
ethically with others in a diverse population.

This was also somthing that I was able to do prior to entering the
program, however, I had never applied it in this manner
We frequently had case studies to solve.

This is an area that I improved greatly on. Somehow, after wrestling
down a large chemistry analyzer, my home computer doesn't seem
quite so intimidating
We learned how to effectively use all the instruments in our
proffession.
Yes the school provided a mix of both manual and automated test
techniques.
