Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science

As “illness investigators,” medical laboratory scientists use sophisticated instruments to analyze blood and other body tissue and fluids. They provide the essential information used to make diagnoses and plan treatment.  The University of Kansas' one-of-a-kind program offers cutting-edge training and technology combined with real-world experience for students interested in clinical laboratory science. Students learn in a innovative dual-track program featuring molecular biotechnology and the traditional clinical concentrations. 

Students interested in clinical laboratory science should contact an advisor early in their college work. This program requires two years of preparatory college course work and two years of professional course work in the CLS program at KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. The program also is open to students with a bachelor's degree and having completed the prerequisites.
