BSHS in Medical Laboratory Sciences | Montgomery College Crosswalk

This is the recommended program of study for students planning to obtain a Montgomery College associate degree and transfer to GW to complete the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) in Medical Laboratory Sciences.

The BSHS in Medical Laboratory Sciences program prepares students for the Medical Laboratory Science profession, which has a strong job outlook with job growth predicted much faster than the national average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical laboratory scientists function as detectives, investigating and determining the causes of disease. They utilize the latest biomedical instruments and molecular techniques to perform both routine and complex testing. Today's medical laboratory science graduates work in diverse settings including hospital laboratories, physician offices, clinics, commercial and research laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, as well as government and public health facilities.  Graduates of the BSHS in MLS are eligible to take national examinations for certification as a medical laboratory scientist, such as those offered by the Board of Certification of the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
