 Goals of the Introductory Physics Laboratory
Students completing the introductory laboratory should understand that physics is an experimental science and that observation and experimentation are as important as concepts and theories.
The combination of two factors — laboratory course design based on an understanding of the preconceptions students bring to the study of physics from their past experience, and the continuing development of MBL and other laboratory technology — has the potential to significantly improve the effectiveness of laboratory instruction.
Research on the efficacy of different approaches to laboratory teaching and ongoing discussion of the relative merits of various approaches are vital to the improvement of laboratory teaching.

 Clinical laboratory technologists and technicians
Clinical laboratory technologists usually have a bachelor’s degree with a major in medical technology or in one of the life sciences; clinical laboratory technicians generally need either an associate degree or a certificate.
The usual requirement for an entry-level position as a clinical laboratory technologist is a bachelor’s degree with a major in medical technology or in one of the life sciences; although it is possible to qualify through a combination of education, on-the-job, and specialized training.
Employment of clinical laboratory workers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through the year 2012, as the volume of laboratory tests increases with both population growth and the development of new types of tests.
