Michener’s affiliation with UHN has helped to further its goal of providing students with the most cutting-edge medical equipment and access to clinical expertise. Michener’s laboratories are equipped with up-to-date equipment, including a variety of automated lab analyzers, high quality microscopes, double and five-headed microscopes and digital technology to augment student learning. The labs are equipped with multiple analyzers allowing students the opportunity to practice in both small groups and independently.
Graduates are eligible to write the national certification examinations conducted by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Sciences (CSMLS) . Certification qualifies the graduate to work across Canada or for registration with the provincial colleges, such as the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) , which is a requirement to practice in Ontario. The Medical Laboratory Science program is accredited by Accreditation Canada . Accreditation is a quality improvement process that ensures educational programs meet national standards and that students acquire the knowledge, skills and competencies for safe and effective care at entry to practice.
