  1. Anatomy and Physiology Lab
  2. Biochemistry Lab
  3. Microbiology Lab
  4. PCR & Molecular Genetics Lab
  5. Immunology and Serology Lab
  6. Histopathology Lab

DEGREE PROGRAMMES:

There are four degree programs which are being offered by this department

  1. BS MEDICAL LAB TECHNOLOGY (4 YEARS PROGRAMME)
  2. BS BIOCHEMISTRY (4 YEARS PROGRAMME)
  3. M.Sc BIOCHEMISTRY (2 YEARS PROGRAMME)
  4. M.PHIL (2 YEARS PROGRAMME)
  5. GRADUATION PROGREMMES

MISSION STATEMENT:

The programs BS MLT and BS Biochemistry are committed to the pursuit of excellence through a clinically focused advanced laboratory practice programs. They prepare graduates with expert-level knowledge and skills, critical thinking proficiency, and aptitude in scientific inquiry to foster the development of innovative and skilled laboratory experts and researchers. The programs emphasize inter-professional collaboration through coursework and a student focused clinical laboratory practical skills. The curriculum integrates evidence-based practice in diagnostics which provides the foundation for graduates to complete a practice based research project. The scientists of Pathology Technology will:

  • Provide training in advanced diagnostics for graduates to work in health care organizations in government and private sectors.
  • Foster an environment which enables students to focus on areas of special clinical diagnostics
  • Provide students with an in-depth knowledge of clinical diagnostics in the areas of anatomy and histology, physiology, immunology and serology, biochemistry and hematology.
  • Prepare graduates to collaborate with other members of the healthcare team and academics as the clinical lab experts.
