Internship Sites, MLS Program

While you may already have a “favorite” laboratory where you hope to be assigned for your clinical experience, be aware that the CLS programs have written agreements only with the facilities listed.   The program cannot send a student to a facility with which it is not affiliated.   The laboratories have the right to accept or reject any student.   In addition, the ever-changing structure of health care organizations is beyond the control of the CLS programs.   If laboratories merge, or go out of business, or choose to remodel their facilities, they may not be able to accept students when you want to go there.   Every effort will be made to place every eligible student in a clinical site when he/she is ready to go.   Since the beginning of the CLS programs at Ferris State University, there have always been enough clinical sites for the students eligible for clinical experience.
