Clinical Laboratory Science

Clinical Laboratory Science Bachelor's Program

A Clinical Laboratory Science degree will take medical laboratory education to the next level.

The Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science degree is intended for laboratory professionals seeking a baccalaureate degree program. The program prepares graduates for the employment responsibilities where knowledge and skills go beyond those typically attained at the associate degree level. The curriculum will provide students insight into high complexity laboratory testing, laboratory administration and advanced quality control procedures.

The curriculum is based on guidelines from The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) and the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools (ABHES) and is congruent with current laboratory standard requirements as outlined by Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) ’88.

Meeting these objectives will prepare graduates to become employed as Medical Technologists or Clinical Laboratory Science professionals. Certification is available through the American Medical Technologists (AMT)-Medical Technologist (MT) examination. Graduates who are previously American Society for Clinical Pathologist (ASCP) Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) certified may also have the option of taking the Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) examination through the ASCP.

The program is designed as a bachelor’s completion program. Students entering into the Clinical Laboratory Science B.S. program must have an associate’s degree, MLT or CLT certification from American Medical Technologist (AMT) or The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), and one year of clinical experience; or must have completed the Medical Laboratory Technician A.S. program at Sullivan University and be eligible to sit for the AMT MLT certification examination. Graduates of Sullivan University’s Medical Laboratory Technician A.S. program who have been out of the program for a year or more must meet both the certification and employment requirements. Graduates of an approved program may receive a credit block to satisfy the MLT component of the program. All 24 credits of general education requirements must have been met in the following disciplines: English (8), Math (4), and Social Sciences (12).
