During your first three years as a medical laboratory science major at the University of Mount Union, you will explore concepts in chemistry, genetics, microbiology and the unity and diversity of life. These courses will help prepare you for clinical training, which takes place in a hospital affiliate.
In addition to your classroom studies, you will be required to take a “clinical year” of training at one of our affiliated hospital-based schools as part of the medical laboratory science major requirements. This clinical year amounts to 2,000 hours of intense study and laboratory experience culminating in a comprehensive examination, all parts of which must be passed in order to graduate. The clinical training begins in the July immediately following your third year on campus, and lasts until July of the following year.
