Medical Laboratory Science Course Requirements

The B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science may be earned by following a "combined program," which includes a one year clinical laboratory internship at a Miami University-affiliated hospital, following either three or four years of pre-internship study at Miami. The B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science must include a total of 134 semester hours, comprised of 96 pre-internship and 38 internship hours program, as indicated, with a fourth year internship at one of the teaching hospitals affiliated with the program. (See most recent catalog.)

These internships are awarded at the sole discretion of the hospital's Admissions Committee. Admission is based upon curriculum, performance and personal interview. Miami University establishes the requirements of the three academic years for students who wish to compete for these internships, and will award the degree upon successful completion of the fourth year.

Students may also elect to earn an A.B. in Microbiology first, then apply for admission to any ASCP accredited teaching hospital to fulfill the internship requirement of the National Registry program. For more complete details of these and other options within this area, you are urged to contact, early and frequently, the Medical Laboratory Science Program Director, Dr. Marcia Lee. Current policies regarding requirements, applications, petitions, etc., are available only through her office, 42 Pearson Hall, Department of Microbiology, 529-5425.
