Kentucky Articulation Project in Clinical Laboratory Sciences.
Morris, Frances J.; And Others
The Kentucky Council on Higher Education used a federal grant to develop a statewide articulation system in six allied health disciplines, one of which is the Clinical Laboratory Sciences. An in-depth study of admissions procedures, transfer policies, and curricula at the eight state-supported higher education institutions as well as private, proprietary, and vocational-technical schools in the state was conducted. Transfer policy statements and mechanisms for converting credit hours are charted for each institution. Courses were grouped in seven categories, clock-hour averages were compared for the categories, and recommendations were made for structuring programs according to need for courses. The model articulated curriculum, to be adapted to each institution's needs, is charted and allows for articulation of clinical laboratory science courses at three program levels: one-year, two-year, and four-year programs. An ongoing articulation effort is recommended that would have three phases: (1) dissemination of information gathered and compiled in the study, (2) establishment of a central articulation information and coordination clearinghouse, and (3) articulation implementation and maintenance, with feedback to the second coordination phase.
