If you want an in-demand career that allows you to play a critical role in the healthcare system, choose the Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science. You’ll become the go-to person for detecting and diagnosing disease because you’ll be the one analyzing blood, tissue, and other samples. In AUM’s program, you’ll study chemistry, hematology, immunology, immunohematology, and microbiology—and put that theoretical knowledge to work in AUM’s laboratory-based training. Most medical laboratory scientists work in hospitals, but you can also work in:
The curriculum satisfies the requirements adopted by the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education which sets educational standards to ensure that these expected outcomes can be met. This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
Medical laboratory scientists perform many routine and specialized tests in clinical, research or industrial laboratories to provide diagnostic data supporting health care, quality control and product development.

The Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science can also be completed online in the MLT to MLS track. This option is designed for certified medical laboratory technicians (MLTs) who have prior clinical laboratory experience with modern laboratory instrumentation and for military laboratory personnel who have completed military medical laboratory specialist school and have laboratory experience with modern clinical laboratory instrumentation. This online program is convenient for working professionals since they won’t have to perform introductory laboratory exercises that would normally be required of individuals training in the field for the first time. This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
