Role and Scope

Role

We are living in exciting era where evidence based medicine has become the hall mark of disease diagnosis. Hundreds of diagnostic tests have been introduced. Diagnostic laboratories have shared the burden of clinicians and it’s a revolutionary change in the field of medicine. Students of Medical Lab Sciences work as healthcare detectives. They need to be well trained to monitor testing quality and run quality assurance tests in modern diagnostic laboratories to generate accurate results. They are also required to be trained for using sophisticated and expensive biomedical instruments. A certain level of manual dexterity is also mandatory for them to perform laboratory testing on all types of human samples. Therefore, the trained and educated technologists are critical in accurate patient management.

Scope

  • Laboratory scientists
  • Laboratory technologists
  • Laboratory managers
  • Lecturers in academic institutes
  • Researchers in research institutes
  • Health care organizations
  • Health administration
  • Medical technology industry
  • Lab equipment and reagent suppliers companies
