The Clinical Laboratory Sciences program offered a UTRGV is a rigorous 15 month program that prepares you for the field in many aspects. This program is very well organized, it is a small class in which students receive a good education on each subject. The students have professors available at all times. Also, rotations in clinical setting are included in the last 6 months, which help you understand more in depth, practice and prepare you for the real working environment.
