We fulfill our Vision by participating in activities that advance our knowledge and skills in Medical Laboratory Science. These activities include improving our curriculum and teaching methods. Our exchange program with Niigata University provides experiences for our majors and Niigata students in medical technology to learn about similarities and differences between the two programs.
We aspire to be the top academic and technological center of Medical Laboratory Science in the world and maintain a focus on Asian-Pacific issues.
EDUCATE — prepare students to become Medical Laboratory Scientists;
COLLABORATE — promote partnerships with the community to expand knowledge and resources; and
INNOVATE — discover, develop and implement advances in Medical Laboratory Science.
