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 -13 weeks on site at UNMC in Kearney, Nebraska 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 qualify for a post baccalaureate (4+1), a gainful employment certificate of an MLS/CLS program with qualifications to sit for the national ASCP certification.
