Medical Laboratory Science Bachelor of Science in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

About us

The Medical Laboratory Science program provides students with an undergraduate education in clinical laboratory science and prepares graduates to become certified medical laboratory scientists (MLS) and/or pursue post-baccalaureate studies in medical, dental, optometry or other graduate or professional program.

Three reasons to choose the MLS program at Ohio State:

  • You can have the bes​t of both worlds: the extensive resources of a major research university and the personal attention afforded by a small program with class sizes from 25 to 40 students.
  • We are affiliated with a number of excellent hospitals in Ohio that provide you with hands-on experience in both routine and specialized testing.
  • The program has multiple curriculum tracks to choose from based on your academic and professional career goals.
