Student laboratories as a component of a web-based curriculum.
Clin Lab Sci. 2006 Spring; 19(2):117-21.CL

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To enable place-bound working clinical laboratory technicians (CLTs) to benefit from hands-on student laboratory sessions taught in University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) facilities by UTMB professors.

DESIGN

Weekend student laboratory sessions similar to "wet workshops" were implemented and integrated into regular coursework. Student laboratory sessions of 12 hours to 16 hours in length were provided.

SETTING

The UTMB student laboratories.

PARTICIPANTS

Web-based education in Clinical Laboratory Science (WEBCLS) students who are working CLTs in rural place-bound situations.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES

Course grades and certification examination scores on laboratory and comprehensive examinations given to both on-campus students and WEBCLS students.

RESULTS

Of 68 WEBCLS students enrolled in laboratory courses during the calendar years 2003, 2004, and 2005, 66.2% earned grades of A or B in the course compared with 64.2% of students enrolled in the same laboratory courses on-campus. Over a three year period, the WEBCLS students averaged 564.8 on certification exam scores, while on-campus students averaged 470.9.
