Medical Lab Science AT DORDT

Be challenged. Be changed.


Do you want to serve in the healthcare industry? Consider a degree in Medical Laboratory Science. The healthcare industry has an increasing and dire need for medical lab scientists, so the job prospects following graduation are excellent.

Medical lab scientists typically work in hospital labs doing a variety of procedures, which can include diagnosing and treating new infectious diseases through sophisticated diagnostic tests. This job requires attention to detail, and does not always work directly with patients.

In this program, you will spend the first three years studying at Dordt, taking classes in biology, chemistry, and statistics. Your fourth year will be spent at a college certified by the Council of Medical Technology Education (COMTE), where you will receive training in a hospital setting using the equipment used for medical technology.
