Medical Laboratory Science

Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science

Are you interested in a career in medicine? Are you self-sufficient? Precise? Thorough? Medical Laboratory Science is a healthcare career that combines modern laboratory science with medical care. Tests performed in clinical laboratories by medical laboratory scientists–formally called medical technologists–assist physicians in diagnosing and treating pathological conditions. Medical laboratory scientists perform and interpret a wide variety of tests, ranging from simple blood glucose tests to advanced molecular diagnostic assays.

What to Expect in a Medical Laboratory Science Career

  • Provide service and research in clinical laboratory science and related areas.
  • Develop, evaluate, and assure the accuracy and validity of laboratory information.
  • Direct and supervise clinical laboratory resources and operations.
  • Collaborate in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Student Feedback

Madison CarpenterMy name is Madison Carpenter, and I am a senior in the Medical Laboratory Science program. I plan to graduate with my bachelor's in Medical Laboratory Science in May 2023. I used this degree as a stepping stone to help me reach my goal of becoming a Physician Assistant. I have absolutely loved the Medical Laboratory Science program, and the professors have helped me tremendously throughout my experience in the program. My favorite part of the Medical Laboratory Science Program would be the clinical experience. Students get to go to clinicals while taking their class load, allowing us to see what we are currently learning about in the clinical setting. A week after I graduate from the MLS program in May, I will matriculate into the Physician Assistant Program at the LMU Harrogate campus. I am excited to be able to continue my education and goal of becoming a Physician Assistant. I would not have made it this far without God and the support of my family, friends, and professors.
