FACULTY OF ALLIED HEALTH & BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

Department Of
MEDICAL LAB TECHNOLOGY

MLT department is one of the best departments of Ibadat International University Islamabad. We have state of the art laboratories. MLT program is designed to follow prerequisite courses in basic science (i.e. Biology and Chemistry), professional courses (i.e., Hematology, Histopathology, Clinical Pathology etc) and clinical training experiences. The MLT series of courses offer you theoretical information to support your efforts to refresh, maintain and enrich your clinical knowledge base. Anatomy and physiology as well as medical terminology courses are prerequisites for MLT Program. MLTs receive education and clinical training (via internships) in chemical and biological testing related to health and human disease. Medical Lab Technologists (MLTs) are highly skilled scientist having associated knowledge of different branches of diagnostic sciences including Biochemistry/Clinical Pathology, Exfoliative Cytology, Genetics, Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Serology. MLTs perform a wide variety of routine laboratory procedures and work in both public and private laboratories serving the health care sector.

Our faculty is certified medical laboratory scientists with advanced degrees and /or special certification and varied clinical experiences offering a diverse academic presentation. They are dedicated to helping you gain the skills and knowledge you need to begin your career.

The vision of the Medical Laboratory Technology department is to produce competent Medical Laboratory professionals who are knowledgeable and skillful. Medical Laboratory Technology is the back bone of all the Medical Sciences. At the Medical Laboratory Technology department, we produce professionals with knowledge and skills to conduct various common and advanced laboratory tests, right attitude with ethical approach and clinical judgment required for competency as Medical Laboratory Technologists and Clinical Laboratory Scientists. This program will prepare the student to independently perform wide array of specialized and complex clinical tests used for diagnosis in fields of Histopathology, Hematology, Microbiology, Immunology, Chemical Pathology, Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics etc.
The department of Medical Lab Technology will provide different opportunities to students in developing basic as well as advanced skills in the field of Medical Lab Technology. Students will undergo rotations in different pathological and research laboratories. Different Seminars and Workshops will be arranged by the department to polish student skills.
