About the Medical Laboratory Sciences Program
The Medical Laboratory Science Program is a joint program between Carroll University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
- Students will spend five semesters at Carroll University taking general education and science courses.
- Students benefit from the small, private college setting, a strong liberal arts education and personal and professional advising.
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Curriculum
- Students will spend four semesters in the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences in the College of Health Sciences at UWM.
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Science provides students with a strong background, professional management skills and technical expertise. Students benefit from instruction provided by highly qualified faculty who represent diversified backgrounds and actively engage in research and service activities.
- Medical technology, cytotechnology, and public health microbiology students who complete required courses with a 2.5 grade point average may apply for an internship at various clinical sites in southeastern Wisconsin.
- The UWM Medical Technology program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.
Medical technologists are trained in all aspects of laboratory medicine, which are critical to the detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This is an excellent major to prepare for medical or graduate school.
Cytotechnologists examine human cells under the microscope, looking for early signs of cancer or other diseases.
Public Health Microbiology
This area prepares students for a career in the laboratory disciplines of public health. Students are educated in a broad range of sciences to perform investigatory and laboratory-based analysis of environmental samples for microbial contaminants of interest. Emphasis is placed on detection of pathogenic disease.
*Students in these programs must take national certification exams.
