Pls, can anyone answer this question? i read Science Laboratory Technology (SLT) through Nigerian Institute of Science Laborotory technologist (NIST) upto hnd level. I want to go for Post graduate studies in Medical Laboratory Science. Would that enable me to become a member of the Medical Lab. Council so i can have the liscence to run a lab?
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 12:04pm On Jan 22, 2011
@Praiseville,
Your best bet now is to study Medical Laboratory Science in any of the Nigerian Universities running the course.
Cheers.

Medical Laboratory Science Council Launches Website
Congrats to all. The Medical Laboratory Council Has Finally Launched Its Official Website.
All of you who have been making enquiry can now locate the website here:

www.mlscn.gov.ng

You Really Need To Visit The Site To Appreciate The Great Work Done By The New Registrar-Prof. Anthony Emeribe. Thumbs Up For Him.
like a shooting relieve to my long standing hunger,a steady adrenalin rush on the very tips of my fingers to my keyboards i ran to the site. Look and behold,MLSCN is online. This for God sake is the right step in the right direction. prof kudos to you.There are a lot to talk about, but for these, i think has answered some of our grieviances against our rulling council. this great profession will surely see the promised land if we all work together to keep being proud of ourselves.We have been marginalized but we will soon reap the full fruits of our labour. I am scientist Olaniyi its amazing seeing my fellow scientist giving out their opinions since the year 2009 up till this time on this very forum more thanks to BENARDS for his thoughtful invention to start this forum In the first place.Once again, to all the scientists and prospective scientists in the house I am saying, always keep the spirit high.

Yes I do support the thumbs up for Prof Emeribe. The website is beautiful and really loaded. How do I get in touch with him or any reasonable person to solve a problem, I paid for my transcript over a year ago till can't get it. They said our results have been misplaced. Please someone tell me it is a joke to console me, if this is what my INSTITUTE is about now.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 10:50pm On Feb 15, 2011
@Niyimat and Monik,
Glad having you on board here to make comment.

Your repeated participation will be highly beneficial to all.

Wishing you the best.
Cheers.

I am so happy to be a part of this forum at a time like this. Dear Forumites, I am at a crossroad in making a decision on my career path. I am a graduate of Microbiology and would like to go professional in my career. Recently, I saw an advert placement in a newspaper by the nigerian institute of science laboratory technology (nislt) calling for applications for becoming associates in slt. I really am interested in sending my application, but I need detailed information about the medical lab. council of nigeria in order to be guided in my decision making, to go for either slt or mls. Thanks.

ihave been following this thread for sometimes and i like some of the comments made. however i will like to point out some things , first i appreciate the observation by manga in a late post which he clarified that in USA the laboratory physician otherwise pathologist ultimately heads the laboratory.this obtains in the western and advanced countries, there is a difference between a pathologist and a medical lab scientist. this difference is noted by bernard in their job functions. according to the american society for clinical pathology(a society that oversees the certification of lab professional includuing medical technologists in USA) career handbook for lab professionals, A pathologist is a physician (MD or DO) who examines tissues and is responsible for the accuracy of laboratory tests. Pathologists interpret the results of these examinations and tests while Medical
technologists work in all areas of the clinical laboratory including blood banking, chemistry, hematology, immunology, and microbiology.They perform a full range of laboratory tests – from simple premarital blood tests, to more complex tests to uncover diseases such as HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and cancer. They are also responsible for confirming the accuracy of test results, and reporting laboratory findings to pathologists and other physicians.
from the above you can see that pathologists and medical lab scientists perform different functions, however there other professionals in the lab from the career handbook viz the medical lab technicians, the cytotechnologists, the histotechnologists.the pathologists' assistant.in nigeria all these except the technician are seen as medical lab scientists, there are two clarifications i'll like to make. the first is in trying to insinuate that a medical lab scientist , i mean a bachelor's in training and competence can be equated to a pathologists as the ultimate head of the lab.it is insulting. a ph.d scientist in western countries can to a certain extent be at par with the pathologists, but not a bachelor's degree holder, there is no basis for comparision, 2nd clarification the ph.d lab scientist can head a lab.in UK they do but increasingly are expected to have at least an MRCPath qualification, prof agbolanhor of LabCore has an FRCPath,but he is not a pathologist.pathologists and PH.D lab scientists interprete result,but when added clinical responsibilities are needed a pathologist takes responsibility

@happygirl04,
If you want to study medical laboratory sciences in Nigeria as a graduate of microbiology, you'll need to apply for a direct entry to any of the universities offering medical laboratory sciences provided you have credit in English, maths, chemistry, physics and biology.

Cheers.

Good day to you all out there!
Please, i need your dire assistance as the professionals.

My dad just recently survived a partial stroke attack. Actually, he did a complete reversal to normal and we are grateful to the Almighty for that.

Since, he stays in the east (village), i need to take to go for a through test/check up to ensure that he is ok/to see if there is ailment anywhere.

My problem now is this:
what type of lab test would i ask him to undergo?
2. Our nearest big hospital is NAUTH, nnewi. Can it be done there?
3. What are the going cost rates?

Thank you all.
