Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Master of Science in Transfusion Medicine


The Master of Science in Transfusion Medicine (MSTM) degree is designed to prepare SBB certified graduates for a career in consultation, administration and supervision or research in the field of immunohematology and transfusion therapy.

The MSTM program is a 30-credit online master's degree for individuals holding a Bachelor of Science in clinical laboratory science/medical technology or associated science and who have certification as specialist in blood bank technology from an accredited program. The MSTM program is designed to provide graduates with advanced knowledge in consultation services to other health care workers, the administration and supervision of transfusion services and in conducting and publish research in the field of immunohematology and transfusion therapy. This program would be offered as a full-time or part-time distance curriculum. Upon completion of this program, the individual would be awarded the Master of Science in Transfusion Medicine degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch.

  • This course has a laboratory component. Students enrolled in this course will be required to attend wet laboratories at participating campuses for approximately four (4) days within one (1) week during the semester to learn molecular procedures related to immunohematology.
  • The student will complete a rigorous thesis that constructs a focused investigation of a clinical laboratory science problem in real-world setting, applies problem solving methodologies for development and execution of solutions, investigates and applies theory through practical implementation of a project, and evaluates and reports this research project in a clear, professional manner using the guidelines set forth in the course syllabus.
  • Credit awarded for these courses for students holding a SBB certification.
