The curriculum for the Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Medical Laboratory Science program is designed to prepare students for entry-level work as medical laboratory scientist.  In addition to four semesters of Medical Laboratory Science courses, post baccalaureate certificate students participate in a six-week internship program during the final semester in order to gain clinical experience and take a required comprehensive final exam to help prepare for the national certification exam.  Graduates of this track of study will be qualified to sit for the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) certification exam.  

Since post baccalaureate certificate students already hold a bachelor’s degree, do not have to meet the General Education (GE) requirements in the curriculum.  To obtain the certificate, student must successfully complete all required certificate courses with a minimum C- grade required for each course.  Students must also maintain a minimum 2.2 cumulative GPA in the program.  Due to the nature of the program, transfer credit cannot meet any certificate requirements, except for prerequisite courses.

To learn more about course offerings and facilities available for clinical internship, please visit the Medical Laboratory Science program website.
