The Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences at VCU has partnered with the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center (SVHEC) in Abingdon, Virginia to successfully deliver its entire didactic B.S. in CLS curriculum to qualified residents of Southwest Virginia and the surrounding area using state-of-the-art telecommunications technology. These technologies include two-way synchronous video-conferencing, satellite downlinks, and web-based lessons.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment in this field of health care is projected to grow 22 percent from 2012 to 2022 which is much faster than average. Download flyer with more information about the Clinical Laboratory Sciences information session.

In the spring semester Jason Osborne and Terry Lambert offered a new course, Life Science (BIO 106). The course focused on teaching students real life applications of biology and field biology. Students in the course hiked to the Channels State Park, sampled river ecosystems for minnows, and went on several bird watching hikes. The main field trip was to an estuary in Georgetown, South Carolina. Students stayed on site at the Baruch Institute and participated in several marsh and estuary sampling activities with researchers at Baruch.
This Fall Life Science will be offered again, and the focus will be on letting students experience biology in the field and will once again take a trip to the Baruch Institute. Students will get to see marine research first hand and learn about our local ecosystems as well. This is a 4 credit class, # 49145 and Lab #49147. Contact Jason.Osborne@sw.edu or Terry.Lambert@sw.edu for more information.
