Neu­mann Univer­sity clin­i­cal lab science ma­jors are 7-7

The Advance of Bucks County - - BRISTOL AREA -

Pe­fLAabLPefA - Seven for sev­enK ft’s a small sam­ple but a per­fect suc­cess rateK Seven Clin­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science ECLSF ma­jors grad­u­ated from Neu­mann rniver­sity in jay, and ev­ery one of them had a job of­fer be­fore walk­ing across the stage to grab a col­lege de­greeK

fn a world where newly minted grad­u­ates com­monly scratch and claw for months be­fore land­ing a job, CLS is ev­ery stu­dent’s dream ma­jorK bvery par­ent’s, tooK The me­dian salary for a med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory tech­ni­cian was APS,OUM in OMNM ac­cord­ing to the Amer­i­can So­ci­ety for Clin­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science EASCLSFK arK San­dra Weiss, di­rec­tor of the Neu­mann CLS pro­gram, be­lieves that start­ing salaries in the Philadel­phia area are even higher, at or above the A4M,MMM lev­elK

The seven Neu­mann grad­u­ates are gulie Cherico EAKfK auPont eospi­talF, Ryan aou­glas Ebin­stein jed­i­cal Cen­terF, gil­lian bar­ley ECrozier hey­stone jed­i­cal Cen­terF, gu­lia cralinger Egen­nersville eospi­talF, Liron jarnin Eaelaware County je­mo­rial eospi­talF, Al­lie Re­nai ECrozier Ch­ester jed­i­cal Cen­terF, and Brit­tany Schaf­fer­man EPhiladel­phia VA jed­i­cal Cen­terFK

jost of th­ese stu­dents didn’t be­gin their col­lege stud­ies as Clin­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science ma­jorsK They started at Neu­mann in an­other pro­gram, and switched into CLS for a va­ri­ety of rea­sonsK

“f was in nurs­ing, but f found the re­search in CLS more in­ter­est­ing and f liked work­ing in the labs,” ex­plains bar­leyK

Re­nai, orig­i­nally in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a physi­cian as­sis­tant, de­cided that she wanted to fo­cus on in­fec­tious dis­easesK “f found Neu­mann’s pro­gram to be vig­or­ous and that’s what f need­edK CLS guar­an­tees you and job, and a very good­pay­ing job, at OP years oldK”

Ac­cord­ing to the ASCLS web­site, “jed­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory science pro­fes­sion­als are vi­tal health­care de­tec­tives, un­cov­er­ing and pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion from lab­o­ra­tory analy­ses that as­sist physi­cians in pa­tient di­ag­no­sis and treat­mentK They use so­phis­ti­cated bio­med­i­cal in­stru­men­ta­tion and tech­nol­ogy … to per­form lab­o­ra­tory test­ing on blood and body flu­idsK”

Weiss be­lieves that ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in the field will be avail­able for years to come “be­cause many ex­pe­ri­enced med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory pro­fes­sion­als are re­tir­ing or ap­proach­ing re­tire­ment ageK”

The Bureau of La­bor Statis­tics of the rKSK aepart­ment of La­bor sup­ports that claim, pro­ject­ing that the em­ploy­ment of med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory tech­ni­cians and sci­en­tists will in­crease by N4B through the year OMNSK Ac­cord­ing to gobs Rated Al­manac, there is a short­age in the field in many parts of the coun­try, guar­an­tee­ing em­ploy­ment and higher salaries for grad­u­atesK

“Stu­dents grad­u­ate with a bi­ol­ogy de­gree and a con­cen­tra­tion in clin­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory science,” Weiss points out, “so they are much more mar­ketable be­cause they are rec­og­nized as a clin­i­cal lab tech­nol­o­gist and as a bi­ol­o­gistK Stu­dents can con­tinue their dream of go­ing to med­i­cal school, physi­cian as­sis­tance pro­grams, doc­toral pro­grams, or other grad­u­ate de­grees while work­ingK CLS is a tough, rig­or­ous pro­gram that re­quires a love of science and medicine, and crit­i­cal think­ing in the per­for­mance of ac­cu­rate and re­li­able lab­o­ra­tory workK”

Some of the very happy Neu­mann Univer­sity Clin­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science ma­jors, all of whom have jobs, are Julie Cherico, Liron Marnin, Ryan Dou­glas, Jil­lian Ear­ley, and Al­lie Re­nai.
