Lab course work as lab experience?

Asked 1 week ago by Guest (180 points)

Hi! I'm currently applying for research assistant, lab tech, and lab assistant jobs at the hospital I'm currently volunteering at. I don't really have any formal experience working under a professor or PI. So I was wondering if the labs I took throughout my undergrad coursework would count as laboratory experience? In one class we were allowed to take the techniques we learned the first half of the semester and create and analyze our own research project. So maybe that counts but regular lab course work does not?  Any clarification would help and be much appreciated! I know some hospitals/labs will consider different things to count as experience as others.

Your coursework does not count as work experience, but it does count as laboratory experience as you have done lab work.
