The University of Michigan Clinical Microbiology Laboratory has affiliations with the accredited Medical Technology programs at Ferris State University, Eastern Michigan University, Wayne State University and Michigan State University. Selected students have a 5 to a 6-week clinical rotation in each area: Bacteriology, Mycology, Mycobacteriology, Parasitology, and Molecular Diagnostics. Students will gain real time experience with patient samples as well as utilization of diagnostic equipment.
Rotations through the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory are part of the Pathology Residency program. While in the laboratory the residents are exposed to all the areas of the laboratory to get a strong understanding of techniques and procedures used to produce patient test results. The residents also function as a reference source for the laboratorians and provide background information and advice for better performance of testing.
Rotations through the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory are part of the Pharmacy and Fellowship program.
