Value Statement

We are committed to meeting the needs of our community by providing high-quality, state-of-the-art, clinical laboratory education and training that is cost-efficient and cost-effective.

The Florence M. Cook School of Medical Laboratory Science was founded in 1947 when Carlos Pons, MD, chief pathologist at Fitkin-Raleigh Hospital, now known as Jersey Shore University Medical Center, and a medical technologist, Florence Muriel Cook, undertook the task of training two students at the bench. From that humble inception, the school has grown to be the structured program it is today. It has graduated many professionals who have fulfilling careers at hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, research laboratories, and blood banks.  The graduates have pursued positions in information technology as well as academia, and are numbered among our competent physicians and nurses.
