Mary Ann McLane, professor of medical laboratory sciences at the University of Delaware, is serving as an expert education consultant for the “eClinic: An Innovative Technology for Clinical Laboratory Sciences Education” grant project.

The project will develop 30 student learning modules featuring computer-based medical laboratory science information along with high-quality 3-D animated simulations and virtual laboratories for use in a classroom setting to study standard curricula, McLane said.

“The modules will provide access to clinical instrumentation and critical thinking experiences expected of someone who is becoming a medical laboratory scientist,” McLane said. “For a variety of reasons, this equipment is beyond the resources of most college and university programs to provide.”
