Harrisonburg and JMU Happenings:

I would like to share an opportunity with you for your students interested in biology or chemistry.  I am with the Sentara RMH Medical Center School of Histotechnology and Medical Laboratory Science.   The Sentara RMH School of Histotechnology is a one year program.  The program includes six months of lecture and student labs, followed by six months of rotation through hospital histology labs.  Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the ASCP HTL Certification Exam.  There is a severe national shortage of Histotechnologists, and many of our graduates have jobs before graduation.  The prerequisites for admission to the program include:  a bachelor’s degree, 30 semester hours in chemistry and biology with a minimum of 12 hours in each, at least one college level math class, and at least a 2.5 GPA. More information about the program can be found on our website.
The Sentara RMH School of Medical Laboratory Science is also a one year program.  The program includes six months of lecture and student labs, followed by six months of rotation through all departments in the clinical laboratory.  Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the ASCP MLS Certification Exam.  We are proud to note that our graduates have had a 100% pass rate on the exam for the last 17 years!  The prerequisites for admission to the program include:  a bachelor’s degree, 16 semester hours of biology including microbiology and immunology, 16 semester hours of chemistry including organic and biochemistry, and at least a 2.6 GPA. More information about the program can be found on our website.
