Medical Lab Sciences

B.SC. MLS

Modern health care has become increasingly dependent on complex laboratory tests—the results of which aid in the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of disease. You will gain fundamental knowledge and skills in biological, physical and health sciences. Medical Laboratory Science includes laboratory analysis in five different disciplines: Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Histotechnology, Microbiology and Transfusion Science. Medical laboratory science combines the use of sophisticated instruments and techniques with the application of theoretical knowledge to perform complex procedures on tissue specimens, blood samples and other body fluids. The tests and procedures that Medical Laboratory Technologists perform provide critical information enabling physicians to diagnose, treat and monitor a patient’s condition.

Programme Objectives:

  • Explain the principles, methods & clinical significance of laboratory procedures in diagnosis and treatment of disease and maintenance of health.
  • Interpret and evaluate patient results and suggest or select appropriate additional testing.
  • Use quality assurance principles and practices to ensure the accuracy and reliability of laboratory information.
  • Use the principles of method evaluation to select new techniques and instruments.
  • Explain and apply the major principles and practices of laboratory administration, supervision and budgeting.
  • Explain and apply principles of effective test utilization.
  • Use educational methods to present information and develop instructional materials.
  • Use research methods to design, conduct and disseminate results of studies on new technologies, procedures or diagnostic correlations in laboratory science.
  • Apply principles of management to the acquisition and evaluation of laboratory information systems.
  • Communicate effectively with laboratory personnel, other health care professionals, patients and the public.
  • Communicate effectively in both written and spoken English.
  • Formulate a strategic plan for professional career development.
