School of Health Sciences Medical Laboratory Science


I graduated from USD in 1973 with a B.S. in Medical Technology. I did 3.5 years undergraduate and then did a 1 year internship in Denver. I have often wanted to relay my gratitude for the wonderful education and start I received from USD. Everything I studied and learned as a college student prepared me for this career. It took 4.5 years to become well prepared. I have worked in the field for 40 years. I have always enjoyed this field and feel thankful for all the wonderful experiences and personal growth that have come with it. I have worked in different sizes of hospitals, clinics, a veterinary research lab, and a reference lab. Each situation required use of different skills. The variety has been amazing and rewarding.

Thanks for all you do for our profession.
