About the Medical Laboratory Science Undergraduate Program

 

 

The Medical Laboratory Science undergraduate program will prepare students for the clinical laboratory. 

  • Classes are designed to teach students how to examine and analyze body fluids, and cells. 
  • Students are instructed to look for bacteria, parasites, and other microorganisms; analyze the chemical content of fluids; match blood for transfusions;  and test for drug levels in the blood that show how a patient is responding to treatment. 
  • Students learn to prepare specimens for examinations, count cells, and look at abnormal cells in blood and body fluids.
