Program Director’s Note

The College of Staten Island Medical Technology Program is proud to be accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS). NAACLS is committed to being the premier international agency for accreditation and approval of education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences and related health care professions. Accreditation by NAACLS allows our students to take the American Society for Clinical Pathology-Board of Certification (ASCP-BOC) Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) examination.

As part of recent Self Study submitted to NAACLS on July 9th, 2018, we established three Medical Technology Program Outcomes:

  • Certification Exam Pass Rates
  • Graduation/Attrition Rates
  • Placement Rates

The tables for the above outcomes are found below for July 2014 through June 2017.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time at Barbara.Davis@csi.cuny.edu.
