Accredited Programs

Specifically programs accredited by The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS).  When choosing your program of study for a profession in the clinical laboratory, it is important that you try and choose a NAACLS accredited program.  While there are other routes to obtain certification by various certifying bodies, by far, the most widely accepted certifications are those from The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) which requires participation in a NAACLS program.
