As new and more effective techniques of laboratory diagnosis are developed, medical technologists become increasingly important and in demand. Our bachelor’s degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences (also known as clinical laboratory sciences) will prepare you for your role as a valuable member of the health services team.

During the program's first three years, our pre-clinical curriculum will provide you with a broad background in biology, chemistry, physics and analysis. Then, during the clinical sequence of your senior year, you will receive specialized, hands-on training at a major clinical partner site approved by TWU and the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).

Clinical rotation

In order to qualify for graduation, all Medical Laboratory Sciences majors must successfully complete a clinical rotation following completion of all coursework here at TWU. This clinical rotation consists of both formal classes (hematology, parasitology, etc.) and hands-on laboratory training. Clinical rotation sites are listed below.

Completion of our program will qualify you to take the National Registry Examination for certification as an MLS (ASCP).
