The Clinical Lab Science event is a Health Professions Event for a single competitor (this event used to be part of the Biomedical Lab Science event which has now been split between Biotechnology and this Clinical Lab Science Event). This event provides members with the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills for a traditional lab setting.
Please be sure to check the short sheet guidelines which tell you how to prepare for these events, as well as, the Montana Gotta Have It list which informs you of the equipment you are responsible for bringing to SLC.
