The Parkview Medical Laboratory Science Program was established in 1956 to prepare graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as a medical laboratory scientist professional.
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.
