Medical Laboratory Sciences Program


The Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) Program was founded in 1970 as an undergraduate major of the Institute of Health Sciences.

The MLS mission is to educate entry level laboratory professionals to accept positions in the wide range of health related laboratories in the New York area. These include:

  • hospital and private diagnostic labs
  • academic research laboratories
  • pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies


If you are a current MLS student and have not received emails from your course instructors through Blackboard, please get in touch with them or the Student Helpdesk immediately.

Due to the Coronavirus situation, in-person registration advisement for new MLS majors has been cancelled. Instead, MLS advisors will contact newly accepted students to set up phone or online advising appointments.


If you have any question about registration advisement sessions, please send an email to Dr. Steven Einheber at
