Clinical Laboratory Science Training Programs

In collaboration with Cal Poly Pomona, the College of Extended Studies and International Programs is pleased to offer one year post-baccalaureate training programs for Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS) and Clinical Genetic Molecular Biologist Scientist (CGMBS).

For further information, including application dates, use the Department of Biological Science link below

These programs are funded by a subcontract from San Jose State University (SJSU) for the "California Statewide Biotechnology Clinical Laboratory Consortium Project." The contract is part of a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The program, designed to address the critical shortage of clinical laboratory scientists, establishes a post-baccalaureate certificate program at two CSU campuses Cal State L.A. and Cal Poly Pomona - in partnership with a consortium of hospitals for the required bench training.

For additional information and an application packet, please visit the Department of Biological Sciences website for the CLS & CGMBS programs.
