The MSMLS program requires the completion of five (5) credits of Capstone work (MLSC 585 Applied Studies in Medical Laboratory Science) as determined by the emphasis chosen.
A Capstone Project is also a part of the Applied Studies in Medical Laboratory Science course.
For this portion of the program, students may be required to work in collaboration with one of our nationwide affiliate clinical or research facilities located across the United States.
Note: Affiliates are added and/or deleted from year to year, therefore a particular clinical site cannot be guaranteed.
With a master level degree, you will be equipped to become a leader in healthcare. Depending on the area of specialization, graduates of the MSMLS Program are qualified for several leadership positions in the MLS field.
Our goal is to prepare you for today’s global work environment, to help you develop the skills needed for excellence in healthcare, and to encourage a dedication to improving the human condition.
