Clinical Laboratory Science

Clinical Laboratory Scientists, also known as medical laboratory scientists and medical technologists, are credentialed health professionals who are a vital part of the health care team.

Clinical laboratory scientists perform laboratory tests to diagnose and treat disease and maintain health. In hospital settings, they analyze blood, tissues, and body fluids to detect disease. They work with sophisticated computerized equipment such as automated chemistry and hematology analyzers, GLC-Mass spectrophotometers, and thermal cyclers for molecular testing. Clinical laboratory scientists develop and evaluate new procedures, maintain quality assurance, educate health care professionals, and manage the laboratory.


Program Outcome

One of the Clinical Laboratory Science Program outcomes, which is communicated yearly to the public, is placement of graduates in the workforce. An acceptable placement for a graduate is if they begin working as a Medical Technologist/Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) or continue on with their education. A total of 14 BS-CLS and 8 MHS-CLS students graduated in December 2011 and May 2012. The placement of these graduates was 100%. Seventeen (17) graduates (77.3%) were reported to work in the state of Georgia and 5 graduates (22.7%) out of state in Oregon.
 

Job Outlook

Job opportunities for clinical laboratory scientists are excellent, with more openings than available job seekers. Employment is expected to grow at a faster than average rate. (source: United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook)

"I would do it all again. I am so thankful I applied to the MHS-CLS program and for our professors who believe in us and work with us to make sure we understand the information not just for the certification exam, but also for our future career."
