This four-year, entry-level Clinical Laboratory Sciences degree from University of Kansas is for those with an interest in performing diagnostic testing on blood, bodily fluids, and other human specimens.


Program Overview

As “illness investigators,” medical laboratory scientists use sophisticated instruments to analyze blood and other body tissue and fluids. They provide the essential information used to make diagnoses and plan treatment. From anthrax incidents to outbreaks of SARS and avian flu, these professionals are involved in investigating events that make headlines all over the world.

The extensive scientific knowledge and skill developed through the program also provides the student with a distinct advantage should they decide to pursue further academic or professional studies.

Students enter the Clinical Laboratory Sciences program at the University of Kansas after two years of prerequisite course work. They then complete two years of clinical laboratory science courses at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas to earn a bachelor's degree and sit for the registry exam.

Students interested in KU's program in clinical laboratory science should contact an advisor as soon as possible in their college career. Planning ahead allows students to obtain the required course work and help prevent unnecessary expense.
