This is the first version of the 2023–24 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The Carver College of Medicine partners with various programs to offer the major in medical laboratory science. The programs are fully accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. All graduates are eligible for national certification examinations in medical laboratory science.

Undergraduate study in medical laboratory science is guided by the academic rules and procedures outlined in the Carver College of Medicine section of the catalog. Because the Carver College of Medicine partners with affiliated programs for the medical laboratory science major, students are not held to the University of Iowa in-residence requirement.
