Directory of Credit-Granting Policies in Medical Laboratory Education.
National Committee for Careers in Medical Technology, Bethesda, MD.
Ways now exist for medical laboratory workers to advance up the educational career ladder, gaining credit for prior training and/or experience. A total of 369 Certified Medical Laboratory Assistant Schools, colleges with Associate Degree Medical Laboratory Technicians programs, schools of Medical Technology, and colleges with baccalaureate Medical Technology programs who grant such credit are listed in this directory. Three associate degree programs (two of them external degrees) helpful to laboratory technicians wishing to qualify for MLT (ASCP) certification are also included. With the exception of the simple CLA Schools chart, the other three portions of this directory follow a general format showing credit-granting methods, amounts of credit offered, options for use of that credit, and eligibility. Credit-granting methods shown in the first few columns of each chart include the CLEP examination, local tests made by each institution, and CASE (the Commission on Accreditation of Service Experience of the American Council on Education) evaluations. Another column in each of the three charts indicated whether a demonstration of actual performance is required of candidates in addition to the other methods indicated. Amounts of credit granted are generally shown in terms of semester hour(s) or quarter hour(s). (Author)
