Bachelor of science medical laboratory technology

The first two years of the B.Sc. Medical Laboratory Technology programme are the foundation years. Students are taught matters which enables them to have a stronger subject content background in the basic sciences as stipulated in the syllabus. The third and fourth years are focused on core clinical subject areas like haematology, microbiology, histopathology and chemical pathology.
During the training, a lot of practical bench work, in addition to theoretical principles are undertaken, both at the Faculty of Allied Health Science and the Alpha Hospital, Madina.
The first two Bachelor of science medical laboratory technology Bachelor of science medical laboratory technology The first twoTo ensure that Medical Laboratory Technology students are exposed to the working conditions of well-resourced as well as under-resourced medical facilities, second and third year students are given a six-week practical attachment during the second semester in a less-endowed health facility outside Alpha Hospital, where in particular, the students can have more exposure on the use of the manual methods of analysis.
The second semester of the fourth year of the programme is devoted to research project work. This enables students to demonstrate their understanding of the chosen field of study.
