The Hidden Profession that Saves Lives!

Check out this recent publication on Elsevier Connect by our very own Dr. Rohde and ASCLS. The article highlights the different routes to profession, salary, and provides information to anyone regarding our critical and lifesaving contributions to healthcare. Please share with any and all via your social networks, family, friends and colleagues.

The Application Process for Fall 2014 has closed.

The Next Application Period will be for Fall 2015.  These applications are due in to the CLS office by February 14, 2015.

Please check the Student Resources tab - Degree Plan Info - Prerequisites Information.  It is important that you have completed the vast majority of the prereqs.  It is especially important to have the science prereqs completed.  Usually only having one science class left to complete is a good idea.

The first step in the review process for applicants will be a paper cut.  Then we will invite the qualified applicants to come for an interview.  Please keep checking the website for updates after applying.

Applications for the Clinical Laboratory Science Program are available by emailing your postal (street) address to ca10@txstate.edu

If you have any questions, please email Carmen Adams at ca10@txstate.edu


Bobcat Day, April 5, 2014

Texas State Student Wins Poster Award at ASCLS
Priya Dhagat, a senior in the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) Program, was awarded first place in the undergraduate research poster competition at the  81st Annual Conference of the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS). Priya’s project, “ Prevalence of Staphylococci, including Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, in a Physical Therapy Education Facility,” was conducted as part of the course requirements for CLS 4361: Clinical Research. She is sponsored by Karen Gibbs, PT, PhD, DPT, CWS, and Rodney E. Rohde, PhD, MS, SV, SM(ASCP)CMMBCM who are co-authors on the poster presentation.
Priya was selected to receive the Rising STAR Grant to attend the ASCLS conference. The Associated Student Government launched this past year the Rising STAR (Scholarly Travel Activity and Research) Grant that provides students who are traveling to perform research. The Rising Scholarly Travel Activity and Research (S.T.A.R.) Grant program has been established by the Associated Student Government (ASG) to promote and enhance the efforts undertaken by the colleges and departments to send students to programs, conferences and activities of a scholarly nature. We have bench marked the number of students participating in this kind of activity and at the end of 2013 wish, with the help of the S.T.A.R. grant, to see a sizable increase in the number of students participating.
Priya received a cash award of $500 and free membership for one year in the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science.  Priya graduated on August 9th, 2013 with a BSCLS and is beginning graduate studies at Drexel University. The focus of her graduate work will be in infectious disease and molecular medicine.

CLS Students Participate in American Diabetes Association Expo
Student volunteers from the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program at Texas State University performed glucose testing at the American Diabetes Association Expo in San Antonio on May 18.
Texas State students Emily Brown, Kathleen Aguero, Michael McCauley, Diana Rayo, and Megan Taylor participated.  Texas State alum Lindsey Stewart also helped along with CLS faculty member Gerald Redwine who organized and supervised the event.
Capillary blood samples were collected and tested using the Infinity™ glucose testing meter.  The meters and reagents were donated by Philosys, Inc. New York, NY.  Patients received educational information about diabetes and their risk for developing diabetes.

For more information about the event, contact Gerald Redwine at (512) 245-6682 or via email at gr20@txstate.edu.  To see more photos, click here
