Department Overview

Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) strives to equip students with competence in the performance, analysis, and interpretation of clinical laboratory procedures. The program encompasses theoretical and practical learning experiences that are based on the biology of humans and focuses on specific areas such as clinical chemistry, medical microbiology, hematology, histology, immunology, and molecular biology. Students spend most of their senior year on clinical placements in local hospitals. Other careers may include pharmaceutical, food, education, and environmental protection. Some graduates may choose to pursue graduate training and enter into in a career in biomedical research. The MLS program has been approved by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and found equivalent to the U.S. Bachelor’s degree. Accordingly, our graduates are eligible to sit for the ASCP international certification exam (ASCPi) without transcript equivalency or evaluation.
