The Curriculum Development Project for the Medical Laboratory Technology Program at Miami-Dade Junior College, Miami, Florida. Final Report.
Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL. Div. of Allied Health Studies.
During Phase I of an Allied Health Professions Basic Improvement Grant, a five-member committee developed a curriculum for a medical laboratory technology program at Miami-Dade Junior College by: (1) defining competencies which differentiate a certified laboratory assistant from a medical laboratory technician, (2) translating expected laboratory performances for assistants into a suggested format for presentation in a college setting, (3) outlining the technical portion an associate degree program, (4) suggesting alternatives within the general education and natural science block required by the college, and (5) evaluating and making recommendations for facilities, equipment, and audio-visual holdings. The proposed program utilizes the module or block concept and provides an integration of practicum with didactic activity at the beginning of the student's course of study, which continues throughout the entire program. Included in this report are: (1) suggested courses for a 5-term program (70 weeks), (2) proposals for eight new block courses covering such topics as clinical hematology, instrumentation, clinical chemistry, clinical microbiology, and clinical practicum, and (3) a suggested format for evaluating the program, which provides for input from faculty, clinical supervisors, students, employers, and the community.
