Are your students wondering what type of job you can get with a science background? Explore a degree that bridges health care and basic science; a career that includes diagnostic discovery in clinical laboratory medicine as well as the intellectual challenge of solving a vexing problem in basic science.

 

The Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences & Biotechnology at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) offers BS, BS/MS and MS programs for science-focused students who want to impact healthcare in three areas:

  • Biotechnology/molecular sciences
  • Cytotechnology/cell sciences
  • Medical Laboratory Science

Biotechnology master's degree student Jason Smith says, "The biotechnology program offers limitless academic and professional possibilities and can be used as a matriculation tool toward a PhD, medical or Physician Assistant school, or many other related health disciplines."

 

These health professions are often unknown, but the job market is growing!

 

Visit Laboratory Sciences Careers to find out what it takes to kick off a career in this field!  This student resource is filled with information such as career pathways, the history of laboratory science, and many other valuable resources.
