Medical Office Laboratory Procedures: Course Proposal. Revised.
A proposal is presented for a Community College of Philadelphia course, entitled "Medical Office Laboratory Procedures," which provides a laboratory introduction to microscopic and chemical analysis of blood and urine as performed in the physician's office. Following a standard cover form, a statement of the purpose of the course discusses course content and the value of the clinical laboratory experience. Next, the course goals are listed and the course units are outlined. Finally, eight course level objectives are presented along with related intermediate performance objectives. The eight course level objectives indicate that the student will: (1) appraise safety conditions in the office or laboratory; (2) describe specimens tested in the laboratory and the kinds of tests used on each; (3) collect specimens and instruct a patient on collection procedures; (4) describe medical office laboratory equipment; (5) perform tests on urine; (6) perform hematology tests on blood samples; (7) list at least five coagulation studies used in physicians' offices; and (8) perform microbiological procedures such as culturing specimens; setting up sensitivity tests, making and staining smears; and differentiating between classifications including virus, bacteria, fungus, and parasite.
