Advanced Hematology II (4 Credit Hours)
This online course will provide understanding, application principles and didactic
reinforcement of hematology/coagulation principles and techniques. Evaluation of case
studies involved in laboratory principles and procedures at a medical technologist
level will require learners to critically think and employ troubleshooting methods
to solve difficult cases. Topics include complete blood counts and differentials,
routine and special blood tests, evaluation of data for leukemias, anemias, and sample
acceptability; calibration and instrument to instrument comparisons; coagulation to
disease states and critical levels; recording and evaluating accuracy, safety, and
quality control, and management issues.
Advanced Clinical Chemistry II (4 Credit Hours)
This online course provides an analysis and synthesis of chemistry related case studies
as a reinforcement of chemistry principles and techniques in a medical laboratory
job setting. The cases will require learners to apply concepts and techniques, coupled
with previously learned theory to diagnose, troubleshoot, and correlate results to
pathophysiologic disease states. Learners will evaluate data, apply knowledge, and
compose and defend both orally and written cases through presentations and reports.
Topics include carbohydrates, electrolytes and acid-base balance, nitrogenous compounds,
enzymes and endocrinology, liver functions, lipids, therapeutic drugs and toxicology,
automated chemistry routine and stat, immunoassay, special chemistry tests, molecular
diagnostics, recording accuracy, safety, and quality control.
Trends and Topics in News (4 Credit Hours)
Learners will explore trends, topics, managerial decision making and factors affecting
the current lab scene. Case studies, articles, and collaborative projects are explored
with encouragement to find alternative solutions.
