When I attended the information session conducted by Pat Solberg, I learned that the definition of the profession of medical technology (clinical laboratory sciences) is; the profession concerned with providing information based on the performance of analytical tests upon human body substances to detect evidence of or to prevent disease or impairment, and to promote and monitor good health. At the University of Minnesota, the profession program is two and a half years, and the prerequisites can be accomplished in two years, including 22 weeks of rotations. You can graduate the program in 4 and a half years if it works out correctly. I interviewed Pat Solberg, the student personnel worker from the department of CLS, who gave me great insights toward this profession. She explained to me the ins and outs of the profession and also how important the science field is for this career. She made me realize how much I might enjoy pursuing this career. Pat also gave me motivation to stay strong in school, for the sake of competition. The more I find out about this profession, the more interested I become.
