Medical Laboratory Sciences is a branch of medicine concerned with the performance of clinical tests that provide information to aid physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and the maintenance of wellness. Medical laboratory scientists perform laboratory procedures that reveal normal and abnormal conditions in the blood and other body fluids and tissues of medical patients.
With a Medical Laboratory Science Degree students learn how to run and evaluate scientific tests run on blood or other bodily fluids and specimens. These results are instrumental in determining the presence of disease, guiding treatment, and propelling medical research. Students are also exposed to the latest biomedical instruments and computer programs to enhance accuracy and reliability. Graduates of the Medical Laboratory Science Program are in high-demand and can seek traditional employment in hospital or private clinical settings, or explore a range of opportunities with community health projects, environmental testing, crime labs, sales and marketing, or, with additional education, they can become supervisors of clinical laboratories or medical laboratory educators.
