The University of Wyoming’s Board of Trustees recently approved the addition of a medical laboratory sciences (MLSC) bachelor’s degree program, to be offered through the university’s branch campus in Casper (UW-Casper). Expected to launch in 2015, this degree will be the only four-year program of its kind offered in Wyoming.

The MLSC bachelor’s degree will build upon the existing two-year associate’s degree program offered through Casper College. In addition, it is an ideal option for a person who holds a bachelor’s degree in biology or chemistry, and is interested in a career in a medical laboratory. The program will prepare individuals to conduct a broad range of medical analyses and assays, including hematology, immunology, and other diagnostic tests.

Brent Pickett, associate dean and director of UW-Casper said,

“Often, medical offices with their own labs want individuals with bachelor’s degrees to supervise these laboratories, This program is a great option for medical laboratory technicians who want to advance their careers.”

Pickett, along with colleagues from UW-Casper’s education partner Casper College, worked closely with the Casper Area Economic Development Alliance (CAEDA) to determine which new programs delivered in Casper would best benefit the community.

Scholarships have already been established for students who enroll in the MLSC program, due to an endowment created through a generous donation.

UW-Casper anticipates the first cohort of students to begin in the spring 2015 semester, and is currently taking names of interested individuals. Contact the UW-Casper Student Services Office at (307) 268-2713 to place your name on this list. Prospective students will be notified when program requirements and course details become available
