The William O. Green, Jr., M.D. Medical Laboratory Science Program
A Medical Technologist/Medical Laboratory Scientist is a person trained to perform, with accuracy and precision, the collection and processing of specimens, and the performance of laboratory tests to ensure that physicians have accurate data on which to base a diagnosis. U.S. News & World Report states, "Once again, Medical Technologists and Medical Lab Scientists are top careers in 2011."
The mission of our program is to prepare qualified individuals to enter the profession of medical technology/medical laboratory science with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve competence, and to demonstrate continued professionalism and growth throughout their careers. The curriculum will emphasize proficiency in the evaluation of clinical laboratory data in order to assess results and synthesize resolutions for both technical and non-technical issues. Through this experience, graduates will thus be prepared for future roles in clinical laboratory science, research, education, and administration.
For the past three years, the School of Medical Lab Science Program achieved 100 % graduation rate and 92% overall passing rate, for first time examinees, on the MLS ASCP BOC exam. Additionally, our MLS program had 100 % success in job placement.
