Job Prospects

If you choose this major, you’ll take on the combined challenges and rewards of medicine and science. And when you graduate, you’ll be prepared to work in hospitals, research labs, blood banks, and industry labs.

Students of clinical laboratory science learn to examine body fluids, such as blood, for clues in the diagnosis of diseases. They are trained to conduct and supervise complex medical tests and to manage clinical labs.

Curricular Structure

Course Study

The BMLT course has been divided into 4 major subjects: Medical microbiology, Clinical biochemistry, Haematology and Histopathology and Cytology. Students will attend theory and practical class and do project assignment.
