I'm in my 4th year in the Medical Laboratory Science program at CAHS. I chose UC’s MLS program because it is one of the top-ranking programs in the nation for laboratory science. Additionally, the newly built CAHS building features brand-new student laboratories, which allow us to learn hands-on with top-of-the-line equipment. UC's program has a wonderful clinical placement and an above-average board of certification pass rate.
