Clinical Laboratory Sciences Collaborative Program
Dr. WeiDong Zhu, Coordinator
Saint Peter’s University and Rutgers University offer collaborative programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences with a concentration in Cytotechnology or a concentration in Medical Laboratory Science. Clinical Laboratory Science majors complete all pre-professional and general education requirements—minimum of 90 to 95 credits over three years (6 semesters)—at Saint Peter’s University before beginning the 12 to 15 month (4 semesters) of clinical/professional training at Rutgers University School of Health Related Professions and affiliated clinical/research facilities.
