Student Testimonials


“The Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) Program at the University of Utah has prepared me to become a successful medical laboratory scientist and deliver the highest quality care to patients. The professors are passionate and knowledgeable about their fields of study. By combining traditional lectures with hands-on training, the clinical courses become more engaging. The program of study provides the knowledge and laboratory skills to prepare students for ASCP Board of Certification and for work in a diagnostic clinical laboratory or in research. I highly recommend the University of Utah’s MLS Program for individuals who want to work in the clinical setting without having direct patient contact or for individuals who want to pursue higher education in the medical field.”

“The U of U MLS Program has been invaluable to me in my career. It increased my depth of knowledge about laboratory work and how the many different areas of the lab work together. The material I learned in the program has also been a huge help to me in my first year of medical school as well, giving me a jump start on much of the material compared to my classmates.”

“This program has been wonderful. It is very challenging for a second-language speaker like me, but it is rewarding if you keep enduring to the end. All of the instructors are awesome, they are willing to help you in every step along your way, and always available to lend a helping hand.”

"After graduating with a degree in microbiology, I realized that I wanted to work in the medical field, which lead me to apply for the MLS post-baccalaureate program. It was the best decision I could have made. The professors and laboratory facilities are outstanding and I never thought I was capable of learning so much or having this much fun along the way."
