Medical Laboratory Sciences at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, also known as clinical laboratory sciences, is the allied health profession that directly impacts quality patient care. Using cutting-edge technologies, medical laboratory scientists (MLS) analyze blood and other body fluids to help identify, treat, and prevent hundreds of diseases and conditions - from thyroid problems to diabetes, from leukemia to hepatitis.
Although most entry-level MLS practitioners are employed in hospital laboratories others obtain positions in areas such as: specialty clinics, reference laboratories, veterinary laboratories, biotechnology laboratories, public health laboratories, as well as in facilities that perform paternity testing or evaluation of compatibility for transplant patients. Their skill set, emphasis on accuracy and precision in performing testing and knowledge of method development and validation are readily transferable. This is one reason MLS graduates are also employed in the biomedical/biotechnology industry and research laboratories.
Graduates of our program will be able to sit for the certification examination for medical laboratory scientists administered by the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification (BOC).
