Colorado MLS, MLT, and Phlebotomy Programs

A student performs a blood type and antibody screen at a local program. The blood bank is just one of the many laboratory departments that a student can work in after graduation.


Medical Laboratory Science is a challenging and rewarding career choice. Working together, we provide information to physicians that saves lives. Each day there are new challenges and opportunities in the lab – we are never bored!  Graduates of Colorado programs work in clinical chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, microbiology, and blood bank. Most are certified through the American Society of Clinical Pathology’s Board of Certification.  Watch a brief video that explains what a Medical Laboratory Scientist does.

Colorado is in need of MLT and MLS students to work in hospital laboratories, reference laboratories, clinics and more! All around the state, programs are accepting applications for MLT (associate level) and MLS (bachelor’s level) students.
