COURSE DESCRIPTION.

The Medical Laboratory plays an essential diagnostic role within the health sector. It provides test results in routine and specialized tests of patient samples. This is essential for Clinicians to make proper diagnosis and management of patients.

The Medical Laboratory Assistant Training Programme was introduced in 1968 at Malamulo Hospital. In 1979, the curriculum was reviewed and upgraded to offer Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology, and in December, 1983 the first diploma class graduated.

In 2008, the Department was changed from Medical Laboratory Technology Department to Biomedical Science Department. In 2012, Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences was introduced, to run together with the Diploma Program.
