  • work in blood banking, chemistry, hematology, immunology, microbiology, molecular diagnostics and urinalysis
  • assure that test results are accurate and reliable
  • work with sophisticated computerized technology such as automated chemistry and hematology analyzers, GLC-Mass spectrophotometers and molecular testing such as PCR and DNA probes

Program Outcomes:

The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS) advises the accredited programs to openly communicate to the public the following outcome measures:

  1. Graduate Certification Pass Rates: the annual Augusta University CLS program graduates’ first time MLS(ASCP) exam pass rate reported by the Board of Certification for 2014 was 85%. The first time pass rate reported for Augusta University CLS class of May 2015 was 91%.
  2. Program’s Graduation and Attrition Rates: The 2012-2015 Average Graduation Rate defined as the percentage of students beginning the final half of the program (starting with 3rd semester) who subsequently successfully graduated was 100%.
  3. Program’s Graduate Placement Rates: Between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2015, 82% of Augusta University CLS graduates reported working in the medical laboratory field. Our graduates are working in Georgia, as well as out of state (California, Colorado, New York, Oregon and Tennessee). 18% chose not to communicate their employment information.

Job Outlook

Job opportunities for clinical laboratory scientists are excellent, with more openings than available job seekers. Employment is expected to grow at a faster than average rate. (, Occupational Outlook Handbook)
