Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This course used to be a combination of the Hematology practicum course (MLS 4162). We have separated it into its own practicum since some clinical labs do not perform coagulation within hematology. Separating it into a stand alone practicum allows better flexibility to accommodate the various clinical sites within the MLS program.
