FYMS 102F.  First-Year Seminar: Medical Laboratory Scientists: Healthcare Detectives   (3).

General education math and natural sciences course. Provides an overview of the role that the medical laboratory plays as a vital member of the healthcare team. The work of the medical laboratory is often referred to as the “science behind the medicine” because the information provided by the lab is vital for the screening, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease. In this course, students focus on the role that the medical laboratory plays in healthcare, the personnel who work in the laboratory, the different areas of the medical laboratory, and how lab results are interpreted and correlated with various conditions and diseases. First-Year Seminars apply as an additional requirement in the WSU General Education program; they cannot be applied as a divisional requirement.
