PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION/LICENSURE:
The Clinical Laboratory Science degree program is designed to lead to a professional licensure (ASCP), American Society for Clinical Pathology. While there is a national professional exam, ASCP-BOC, associated with the clinical laboratory science licensure, specific licensure requirements still vary from state to state and by professional organization. UAB is working to develop an online, publicly-accessible database to assist in providing this state-by-state information. In the meantime, if you are interested in learning about potential professional licensure requirements in your state for a specific degree program, please contact UAB State Authorization at stateauth@uab.edu, or call Dr. Lisa Reburn at (205) 934-3258.
