Cultivating the art of data analysis and interpretation

In order to make an accurate diagnosis and design the most effective therapeutic regime, the doctor needs access to test results and analysis findings for blood tests and other tests, such as for viruses. Testing and analysis is performed by a medical technologist. There are two types of tests: laboratory or clinical tests, and biopsy procedures. Testing represents the first step in medical treatment, and plays a very important role in early detection of illness and disease. The Department of Clinical Laboratory Science trains students in the analysis and interpretation of test data.

Curriculum

Nurturing data analysts who know how to interpret test data

The curriculum covers patient safety and interaction with patients, both very important factors in health care delivery. Students also study theoretical and practical aspects of clinical examination procedures, and develop strong ethical foundations for working as part of a team.

Year 1 Year 1 is spent on preparatory components including introductory subjects on chemistry, biology and medical science. Students also tackle a broad range of general education topics and develop an understanding of the ethics and outlook of the medical professional.
Year 2 Year 2 focuses on the fundamentals of clinical examination procedures, particularly the medical basis that underpins the work of the medical technologist. Theoretical studies are augmented by practical exercises in experimental examination techniques.
Year 3 In Year 3, students extend their knowledge into more specialized practical aspects of theory and technology in clinical settings and explore the correlation between examination and disease and associated clinical implications.
Year 4 In Year 4, the focus shifts to clinical training in the hospital setting, drawing on previous studies to enhance practical skills. Students also pursue further studies in their chosen area of specialization and start preparing for the national accreditation examination.

Post-graduation Career/Academic Paths

Most students go on to work at general hospitals, university hospitals and other such hospitals, although some choose to provide supportive medical services at standard, private-sector companies.
