Mercy Clinical Lab Science Program
The one-year program begins in July. You will spend approximately 40 hours a week, eight hours a day, dividing your time between the classroom and the laboratory. Instruction includes technical and clinical aspects of laboratory analysis with clinical correlation, and theory and concepts in the clinical laboratory and behavior sciences.
If you are paying tuition to an affiliated school that reimburses the program, your tuition will depend on the school and there is no additional tuition charged by our program. Otherwise the tuition for the clinical year is $500 and is assessed directly to the student. Once the training has started, there will be no refunds granted by the program for voluntary withdrawal.

Room, board and transportation are your responsibility. Meals are provided at discounted prices in the hospital cafeteria.
Certification exam fees

Parking is available free of charge.
Employment opportunities in the laboratory are often available during your training year. Policies and restrictions on employment will be covered in orientation.
