The Parkview Medical Laboratory Science Program was established in 1956 to prepare graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as a professional medical laboratory scientist (MLS).
A professional MLS provides physicians with the scientific data necessary to aid in restoration of the sick to a healthy mind and body. The student must acquire skills, knowledge and understanding, as well as a sense of responsibility through observation, performance of laboratory tests, and research and application of those tests to real situations.
The Program is designed to prepare graduates to perform as professional members of a total healthcare team in any medical laboratory environment. Lectures and laboratory exercises in the student laboratory, along with carefully planned clinical rotations for hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art medical laboratory, prepare students to meet the challenges of society's healthcare needs.
