When you apply for a license at any level, you must indicate one or more specialties. Each specialty has slightly different requirements, including which exams you can use to qualify for licensure. You can later add more specialties to your license by taking the appropriate exam.
The following is a partial list of specialties available to clinical laboratory personnel:
- Serology / Immunology
- Clinical Chemistry
- Blood Banking(Donor Processing)
- Molecular Pathology
- Andrology and Embryology
Each category of specialty has a scope of practice that describes the type of testing that may be performed with that category.
