As a Medical Laboratory Scientist, you become a behind-the-scenes detective in the health care industry, accurately and precisely performing laboratory procedures to provide crucial information in diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases. Using the latest in biomedical instruments, Medical Laboratory Scientists analyze samples of blood, tissue and body fluids to generate accurate, reliable test results.
Upon graduation, you earn a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Sciences. As a graduate of this program, you are eligible for national certification as a Medical Laboratory Scientist (also known as Medical Technologist). Several states require a license to practice and may require graduates to take an additional examination. (Note: Texas does not currently require a license to practice.)
