The Summer Laboratory Science Program at Tri-City Medical Center offers high school students the opportunity to explore career options and gain experience in the clinical laboratory environment. Clinical laboratory work is different from research work in that a patient’s diagnosis, treatment, and health may be directly dependent upon the laboratory testing results. Our scientists are part of an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals dedicated to patients’ health.
In the laboratory, our scientists work with blood, tissue, and body fluid specimens. They perform tests from the simple to the complex, using manual methods and state-of-the-art instruments, and are responsible for the accuracy of the results they generate. As a Summer Laboratory Science Program participant, you will work in one of our clinical testing laboratories specializing in the areas of hematology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, transfusion medicine, or anatomic pathology. You will assist our laboratory personnel in aliquoting, preparing, extracting, and centrifuging biological specimens collected from patients or other duties within the scope of laboratory departments. This program is expected to begin on Tuesday June 24, 2019. Upon completion of internship, a $2,500 Scholarship will be provided.
Each intern must pass a physical evaluation, urine drug screen and background checks before starting work.
