Is Medical Lab Science Clinical experience?


I am currently a nontrad with no clinical experience planning to apply for the medical lab science/ medical lab technology program at my university. I’ll graduate in two years then I’ll be applying to medical school!

The only downfall is I haven’t been able to get any clear answers if working as a MLS/CLS counts as clinical experience?

I live in a rural community so getting clinical/volunteer experience has been extremely difficult- so this opportunity would work great for me!

Any advice/information is greatly appreciated & wish you all the best on your journey!

During my work experience, i seen the medical lab science is clinical experience. But we seen lots of technology available to make the process in a proper way.

I’d mix in some Patient Care Experience as well. To my understanding, CLS/MLS do not directly work with patients.
