Medical laboratory scientists help improve lives by providing essential clinical information to health care providers. They are responsible for assuring reliable results that contribute to the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of physiological and pathological conditions.
Laboratory tests are extremely valuable and contribute up to 70 percent of medical decisions made by health care providers.
At Atiba University, our excellent faculty and well equipped laboratories will give you the perfect platform to study the depth of this course.
Graduates of Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) programs often have management responsibilities. Many may specialise in areas such as haematology, clinical chemistry, toxicology, virology, microbiology, immunohematology (blood banking), or molecular biology.
Many graduates pursue advanced degrees in medicine, physician assistant studies, pharmacy, dentistry, and veterinary sciences. The MLS curriculum also offers an excellent foundation for admission to graduate programs in medical sciences.
