Why Medical Laboratory Science?
Laboratory analysis by medical laboratory scientists plays a critical role, along with that of the physician, in disease diagnosis, treatment, and health maintenance. Medical laboratory scientists are professionals who are prepared not only to produce laboratory data but also to assure the quality of those data, compare and select laboratory methods, advise other health care professionals on the validity of data, and supervise laboratory personnel
If you love the sciences and want an opportunity to help physicians and patients with your knowledge, this major may be ideal for you.
The University of New Haven Medical Laboratory Science Program offers an option for graduates with a bachelors degree in the biological, forensic, chemical, or physical sciences to earn a second bachelors degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences.
This intensive track for B.S. degree graduates, running concurrently with the traditional undergraduate medical laboratory science curriculum, requires one year of professional medical laboratory science coursework and one year of clinical rotations.
At the program’s conclusion, students are eligible to take the national certification exam to qualify as a medical laboratory scientist. Most employers require certification to work as a medical laboratory scientist in a clinical laboratory. With a critical nationwide shortage of certified medical laboratory technologists, market demand has resulted in increased salaries and excellent job placement
