I am not sure if this is an environmental sustainability question or
pointed to not wasting the clinical's resources. Either way yes.

everything!
I liked having the labs right after the lecture.
I really enjoyed this program. It was a good fit with my science
background and found that working in the lab is a good career fit for
me.
I liked that we had lecture and got to learn theory and then got to
practice the theory in the lab. Everyday in lab we got to see exciting
organisms. I also enjoyed meeting and getting to know the people,
not only in class, but at my clinical sites as well.
lots of clinical experience. small class sizes. getting into the field the
first semester to confirm that I like this field.
LAB
the instructors were very helpful and made sure we knew what we
were doing.
Correlating what I learned with real life situations in clinical.
I liked how in the end Kari and Carolyn really prepared us for what we
have to know and do. It was nice knowing the theory and then
applying everything that we learned at our clinical sites.
I really liked how well prepared Kari and Carolyn were, and how they
were willing to help me achieve my goal. I liked how they applied
theory to real world situations and the labs were relevant and
prepared me for clinicals. I liked the emphasis on professionalism,
and the constant confidence building encouragement.

Have it as a requirement to get into the program that people pass A
and P.
I would say possibly extending the clinical microbiology or adding a
summer class of it. The pace felt so fast and I felt a little unprepared
for clinical. I think that if there was more info/exams on like a class
going over media, and more practice with urine or stool cultures that
it would be more helpful for the future students. I think like a summer
class or small class of a prerequestie of how to differentiate what
media is used for what thing that was cultured, and what grows on
each media, and the differences between anaerobic and aerobic
media would be really helpful to know before getting in to the
biochemical of different organisms and testing for them.
I would add more study into molecular diagnostics, DNA studies. I
would add mathmatical questions throughout courses, and in micro (
cause its the most recent ) I would add more on media and how it
works.
nothing
A few more clinical hours in the 1st year.
Clinical hours, more the first year, not full time the second year. Its
hard when you do 40/week then work 30/week for a real job. no time
for studying

I think that I would add more Microbiology. It was a little
overwhelming in class when we only got to see certain organisms or
procedures one time, because when we got to clinical I forgot a lot
since we only performed certain procedures once in class. I think we
should have spent some more time knowing what was normal flora
and what pathogens were on certain media and depending on what
specimen type we were reviewing. We were so set on identifying
everything, that when I got to clinical, there were a lot of normal flora
that I was getting stuck on wanting to identify that was not
neccessary.
More time with Fungus, it is a big part of micro but it is the one area
that I do not feel comfortable in.
Nothing
The lectures that encompass a longer period should be broken into to
lectures. This would be useful in the case where there is 1 lecture
per week and 2 labs. Could have a lecture before each lab.
