Expand Your Medical Technology Career with a Medical Laboratory Science Degree
Continue your career and become a Medical Laboratory Scientist. Expand on the associate’s degree you have already obtained. Envision yourself performing more complex laboratory tests on clinical specimens such as blood, microbial cultures and tissue samples.
You will learn to operate more sophisticated laboratory instruments to carry out chemical, microbial and molecular test procedures. Write and implement new procedures, evaluate test results, and establish and monitor programs to ensure the accuracy of laboratory testing.
Medical Lab Scientists Play an Important Role in Treatment and Prevention
The Medical Laboratory Science Program will prepare you for a higher level of responsibility. Perform manual tests rather than automated processes. Review and analyze blood and tissue samples and have deeper discussions with clinicians. Manage multiple samples and cultures simultaneously.
