Clinical Laboratory Management:
Master of Science, major in Clinical Laboratory Management , Curriculum

The MS in Clinical Laboratory Management program is designed for the practicing clinical laboratory scientist who desires formal, but flexibly delivered graduate education in management. In an effort to meet the need for advanced management skills for laboratory professionals, the program in clinical laboratory management joins the academic expertise of two existing programs within the College of Health Sciences: Clinical Laboratory Science and Health Systems Management. The program builds upon the technical knowledge of the both programs by providing advanced courses in organizational theory, research, finance, economics and health care organization, as well as clinical laboratory science.

Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree in clinical laboratory science/medical technology and hold CLS(NCA) and/or MT(ASCP) certification. Full-time and part-time options are available, and many courses are taught online.
