OTC Bioclinical Sciences Department

The mission of the Bioclinical Sciences Department is to help students gain knowledge in the basic human sciences.

After completing our courses, students should be able to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of the normal structure and function of the human body through various lectures and laboratories
  2. demonstrate an understanding of the disease process and infectious agents that cause disease
  3. demonstrate higher order thinking skills as applied to common healthcare situations

We are a diverse group of instructors with expertise in a variety of biological and public health areas. We work closely with OTC’s Health Sciences Division as many of our students go on to seek a Health Sciences degree. Since most Health Sciences programs have a selective admissions process, students awaiting acceptance are placed into our AA.BCS Degree. This allows them to study relevant topics while maintaining degree-seeking status for financial aid purposes.
