Participating hospital laboratories provide the laboratory internships. The MLS year is 43 credit hours and is divided into three parts:

  1. Student lab - 13 weeks on site at UNMC in Kearney, Nebraska beginning in May of each year.

  3. Second clinical rotation - 17 weeks

During clinical rotations 1 and 2 the student will receive academic material online via Blackboard educational platform coincident with performance of medical laboratory work under the supervision of a hospital laboratory technologist. Upon completion of this year’s work the student will qualify for a post baccalaureate (4+1) certificate with qualifications to sit for the national ASCP certification exam.
