Medical Laboratory Science is a challenging and rewarding career choice. Working together, we provide information to physicians that saves lives. Each day there are new challenges and opportunities in the lab – we are never bored! Graduates of Colorado programs work in clinical chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, microbiology, and blood bank. Most are certified through the American Society of Clinical Pathology’s Board of Certification.Colorado is in need of MLT and MLS students to work in hospital laboratories, reference laboratories, clinics and more! All around the state, programs are accepting applications for MLT (associate level) and MLS (bachelor’s level) students.
