Medical Laboratory Science

Faculty: Donelson - Chair,  Garoutte & Moore
Reynolds Hall 210  • 417-625-9376

The Bachelor of Science degree with a Major in Medical Laboratory Science is sometimes referred to as three-plus-one, meaning that the student takes a three-year pre-clinical program at MSSU, followed by one year (32 credits) of clinical work at an accredited hospital school. The pre-clinical studies include the General Education Curriculum and science and other support courses required for all Bachelor of Science degree programs. The Medical Laboratory Science program advisers are in the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences. The completion of a Bachelor’s degree is required before an individual is eligible to take the certifying examination.

Missouri Southern has affiliation agreements with the following clinical schools:

  • Mercy Hospital - Joplin School of Medical Laboratory Science
  • Cox Health School of Medical Technology, Springfield, MO
  • Baptist Health School of Medical Technology, Little Rock, Arkansas
  • North Kansas City Hospital School of Clinical Laboratory Science
  • Saint Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City, MO

If a student wishes to attend an accredited school of medical laboratory science with which the University has no formal agreement, the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs can negotiate an agreement for the individual student.

Students should be aware that enrollment in professional schools is limited. Each of the professional schools has its own admission criteria and selects those students to be admitted to a class from the applicants for that class. In general, this selection is based on the academic record and demonstrated aptitude for the medical field. Students are responsible for filing their own application for admission with the professional schools. Application should be made to the professional school during the early fall of the junior year or approximately 10 months prior to the expected entrance date. It is strongly suggested that the student contact the Director of the program at the desired hospital early in their sophomore year to determine the exact application procedure.

A student may enroll in the professional courses either at the hospital-based school or through Missouri Southern, depending on the policies of the hospital-based school. Students enrolled at the hospital-based school are not considered members of the Missouri Southern student body, since the hospital-based school in such cases is considered as any other accredited institution of higher education. A student enrolling through Missouri Southern is considered a member of the University student body and is therefore eligible for benefits offered all students. The weekly time requirements for the professional medical technology courses (400 level) listed are based on the minimum requirements for a course meeting for a normal academic term for a minimum of 16 weeks. Actual scheduling of classes may vary according to custom of the individual professional school to meet these minimum total hour requirements.

Students in this major whose career goals change or are unsuccessful in gaining admission to a professional training program are ideally suited to complete another science major with virtually no loss of academic credits.
