Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Medical Laboratory Science
Students complete required courses either on a full- or part-time basis. Courses in the major are designed to broaden the student's foundation in the sciences in preparation for the clinical phase of the program. All courses are taken through distance learning, with the exception of the four months of clinical practica.
