Philosophy of the program
The program is based on principles which prepare students to maintain the highest ideals of the Medical Laboratory Scientist profession.
A professional medical laboratory scientist is one who provides the physician with the scientific data necessary to aid in restoration of the sick to a healthy mind and body. The student must acquire skill, knowledge and understanding, as well as a sense of responsibility through observation, performance of laboratory tests, research and application of these tests to real situations.
The program is designed to prepare graduates to perform as professional members of a total health care team in any medical laboratory environment. Carefully planned rotation of classroom lectures and hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art medical laboratory prepares students to meet the challenges of society's health care needs.
Clinical Assignment When Placement Cannot be Immediately Guaranteed
When selecting students, the selection committee lists all the students considered to be acceptable students in the order of preference based on our selection criteria such as GPA, the interview, the desire to train at Parkview, references and discussion with the selection committee. Students who are not placed with Parkview's MLS program will be put on a waiting list. Placement into the program will be based on the criteria listed above. As positions become open before the start of the program year, applicants will be invited to attend Parkview's MLS program based on their place in the list. Unplaced students will need to reapply for admission the following year.
In the highly unlikely event, the program has to take fewer students than originally planned (i.e. be forced to take only six students instead of nine), the affected students will be informed of the circumstances and will be admitted the following year.
