Florence M Cook School of Medical Laboratory Science

The Florence M. Cook School of Medical Laboratory Science has graduated more than 400 students who have careers at hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, research labs, information technology, and physicians.


The school was founded in 1947 when Carlos Pons, M.D., pathologist at Fitkin-Raleigh Hospital, now known as Jersey Shore University Medical Center, and medical technologist Florence M. Cook, undertook the task of training two students at the bench.

From that humble inception, our school has grown to be the structured program we have today.
