The UCCS Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) Program is offered through the University of Nebraska Medical Center CLS Program. UNMC supplies the academic curriculum and is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Local hospitals provide the laboratory internships.  The MLS/CLS year generates 43 credit hours and is divided into three parts:

  1. Student lab -11 weeks on site at UNMC in Omaha beginning in May of each year.
  2. First clinical rotation -13 weeks - Colorado Springs
  3. Second clinical rotation - 25 weeks - Colorado Springs

During clinical rotations 1 and 2 the student will receive academic material online via Blackboard educational platform coincident with performance of clinical laboratory work under the supervision of a hospital laboratory technologist. Upon completion of this year’s work the student will either qualify for a BS in Health Sciences with a MLS/CLS major (3+1) or if they already have a baccalaureate degree (4+1), a certificate of completion of a accredited MLS/CLS program with qualifications to sit for national ASCP certification.
