Medical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences


Auburn University at Montgomery’s Medical Laboratory Science program offers an online option the program.  This online option is designed to recognize the experience of qualified participants by 
NOT requiring these individuals to come on campus and perform introductory laboratory exercises that would normally be required of individuals training in the field for the first time. This option in MLS is offered via the World Wide Web. This option is a distance learning program designed for certified clinical/medical laboratory technicians who have prior clinical laboratory experience with modern laboratory instrumentation and military laboratory personnel who have completed military medical laboratory specialist school and have laboratory experience with modern clinical laboratory instrumentation.  This program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).

The focus of the required online courses will be the theoretical information related to the participant’s experience. Participants in the online option will be required to demonstrate the same clinical experience competencies at the same proficiency levels required of all AUM MLS students. For those in the online option, clinical experience competencies will be demonstrated in an approved clinical facility, typically the participant’s place of employment.  Thus, the advantage of this online option is that pre-professional and professional phase Medical Laboratory Science courses may be completed without having to relocate.
