Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) is where basic laboratory science meets the practice of medicine. It is a profession of highly knowledgeable and skilled individuals who perform clinical laboratory tests on blood, other body fluids, or tissue samples. This is a critical part of health care, as the results obtained by these laboratory tests are a vital tool for physicians in their diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.

People trained as medical laboratory scientists may work in a variety of settings. Many work in clinical laboratories in large medical centers, hospitals, and clinics. Others teach in hospitals, colleges and universities or do research in industrial, public health, and medical laboratories. An MLS may practice as a generalist, using knowledge in several of the scientific disciplines, or may specialize in one scientific area in larger hospitals. Successful Medical Laboratory Scientists are individuals who enjoy studying the biological, chemical and physical sciences, and who find personal satisfaction and intellectual reward in applying scientific methods in the diagnosis and evaluation of disease.

We hope you can join us at our Information Session to hear more about this exciting, in-demand healthcare profession.
