LCCC’s Clinical Lab team takes Second Place at State Competition
Students in Lorain County Community College’s Clinical Laboratory Science program once again proved that they can compete against students from all over the state.
The LCCC team came in second at the Ohio Student Academic Challenge state conference of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science held April 27, 2012 in Columbus. Competing schools included two-year and four-year institutions.
“I’m proud of our students, who have built a reputation for speed and accuracy in their field,” said James E. Daly, program director of LCCC’s clinical laboratory science technology and phlebotomy programs. “LCCC students are recognized as top performers among community colleges and four-year universities.”
The annual Jeopardy-style tournament challenges students on their knowledge of all aspects of working in hospital laboratories. The LCCC team won third place at last year’s challenge and came in first in 2006.
The fast paced question and answer tournament not only provided a fun, competitive way for students to showcase their clinical knowledge, but it also mirrored the real life laboratory, where answers will be demanded at a second’s notice.
Of the five students who participated, three are enrolled at LCCC’s main campus in Elyria and two attend an LCCC satellite program at Terra State College in Fremont.
