COURSE DESCRIPTIONS MDTC 410: Hematology and Coagulation The course includes a study of the blood and blood forming tissues and their relation to the care of patients as they are correlated with the entire clinical condition. 6 credits MDTC 420: Clinical Chemistry (includes instrumentation and RIA) This course includes a brief review of analytical chemistry and qualitative analysis and stresses the chemistry of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, endocrinology, vitamins, hormones, enzymes, etc., and the physiology, metabolisms, and methodologies used in the study of these substances in relation to biologic processes as found in health and pathologic states. Clinical correlation is made with the various situations in which the substances are altered. 8 credits MDTC 430: Immunohematology and Blood Banking Immunohematology emphasizes the application of principles of red cell antigens which are detectable only by the reactivity of red cells with antibodies corresponding to the antigens. Topics include ABO groupings, Rh factor, and numerous other blood group systems. These are all correlated with the compatibility of transfused blood and the various procedures needed to test for this compatibility. 4 credits MDTC 440: Urinalysis The course considers the examination of urine and all other body fluids, such as cerebral spinal fluid, feces, gastric fluid, seminal fluid, amniotic fluid, etc. Emphasis is placed on anatomy and physiology of the kidney and urinary system, methodologies, clinical correlation, kidney function tests, microscopic examination and urinary calculi. 2 credits MDTC 450: Microbiology (includes mycology, parasitology, virology and microbiology) The course includes the study of the various microorganisms, i.e. bacteria, fungi, rickettsia, parasites, and viruses recovered in clinical material. The critical identifying characteristics of the organisms, the diseases with which they are commonly associated, and the sites from which they are commonly isolated are presented. Fluorescent microscopy and its application to identification of microorganisms are presented. 8 credits MDTC 460: Immunology and Serology The course encompasses the serologic reactions employed in the diagnosis of bacterial, parasitic, rickettsial, and viral diseases. The principles of antigen-antibody reactions are developed and the various procedures including agglutination, flocculation, precipitation, and complement fixation are stressed. 4 credits MDTC 470: Medical Technology Education Basic principles of education to include lecture presentation and preparation, writing behavioral objectives, taxonomy levels, curriculum development, and evaluation procedures are presented. Each student is required to give one lecture to include outline, objectives, and some form of evaluation. 0 credit MDTC 480: Management and Supervision Principles of management techniques, budget, personnel practices, laboratory supplies, procurement of equipment. Federal and State Regulations, lab safety, medical/legal matters, and psychology of management are presented. 0 credit
