The Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) Bachelors program recently earned the maximum seven year program accreditation from the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). The MLS faculty and staff include Dr. Leslie Danielson, Dr. John Scariano, Dr. Barbara Masten, Ms. Margaret Alba, Ms. Catherine Gulick, and Ms. Susan Dellinger. Each completed a lengthy self-study and the MLS team hosted a two day site visit by NAACLS in April 2014 which showed zero deficiencies.
Accredited programs must meet rigorous core standards to assure that medical laboratory sciences graduates have mastered career entry level knowledge and skills competencies. The MLS faculty also demonstrated continuous quality improvement in the program's instruction.
