Effective Fall, 2006

Students complete 90 credit hours (3 years) of core science and general education classes at Bloomsburg followed by 30 credit hours (one calendar year) in an accredited hospital program. Students should work closely with their advisor to organize an efficient plan of study.

Students who transfer into the CLS program from another school or degree program may still require 3 years at Bloomsburg to complete the pre-clinical courses. Discuss your timeline with the Allied Health Program Coordinator.
