The Medical Laboratory Science program at Bellarmine University will make you a lifesaver. Most medical decisions are based on laboratory test results generated by Medical Laboratory Scientists. They apply skill and instrumentation to analyze blood cells and body fluids, to identify disease-causing bacteria and viruses, and to perform testing prior to transfusions and transplantation.


The Medical Laboratory Science program at Bellarmine University graduates are employed primarily in hospital laboratories, but also enjoy career opportunities in biomedical research, forensics, biotechnology, toxicology, health care administration, pharmaceuticals and other industries. An MLS degree also provides excellent preparation for medical, dental, or graduate school. 

The Medical Laboratory Science program includes coursework and laboratory instruction in clinical chemistry, medical microbiology, hematology, clinical immunology and immunohematology (blood banking). MLS students experience a one-semester clinical internship at one or more of our affiliated Louisville-area hospitals.
