Medical Technologists, also known as Clinical Laboratory Scientists, ranked at No. 55 with Medical Laboratory Technician coming in at No. 71. Clinical Laboratory Scientists analyze blood, tissue and other body fluids using sophisticated state of the art instrumentation and combine that expertise with their specialized knowledge of the pathophysiology of diseases to provide information to all healthcare professionals.
“Laboratory science is a great career for people who want to play a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, but do not necessarily want to be involved in direct patient care,” said Michelle Brown, M.S., MLS(ASCP), assistant professor in the Clinical Laboratory Science program. “Our graduates are readily hired after graduation. We often have hospitals asking us when students graduate because they are eager to hire another of our excellent graduates.”
