  • disinfection and preparation
  • embalming operations

Embalming Applications Lab Schedule

Students begin their clinical practice in semester I with Clinical Mortuary Practice I (CMP I) and continue throughout their tenure.  Each student is assigned to a lab group prior to each term, consisting of 5-10 of their peers who have varying degrees of experience. Group sizes are determined by enrollment and each group works collectively during their assigned weekly lab time.

Lab Requirements

Students must complete a minimum of 30 clinical operations in order to meet graduation requirements. Ample opportunity typically exists for students to exceed the amount of required embalming operations via volunteer opportunities.
