Good people of Nigeria!!! Can a BSc. in Biologica Science (Edu) with third class upper (3.76) qualify to apply for MSc in Medical Laboratory Science? plase, I need your help. Thanks.

Lol! grin MSc in med lab science bwahahahahaha! grin grin grin there is no MSc in med lab science. Its either you do a msc in medical microbiology & parasitology/immunology, medical biochemistry (chemical pathology) or haematology grin

You read biological science, it will not be possible for you to work as a medical lab scientist in nigeria because MLSCN (medical laboratory science council of nigeria) has suspended, indefinitely, the certification/training programme for individuals that did not actually study med lab science as undergraduates but studied related courses like microbiology, zoology, biochemistry, biological science etc. Without this programme it will be impossible for biologists like you to be licensed for clinical laboratory practice. Licence to practice is the main issue.

If you really wanna be a medical lab scientist, it will be better you go back to school and enrol through direct entry, for medical laboratory science.

I heard a rumour that the suspension of licensing for biology graduates might be reviewed once a new board is constituted for the council. just keep your fingers crossed but as for now its either you go back to school or you forget it completely afterall there are numerous things that a biologist can do, its not by force that you must do medical.

I don't kno y almost everyting is jx f**ked in 9ja. Nigeria is one of d few countries in d world dat is running MLS as a whole course. UK, US, Germany, Belgium, Canada, Japan, China, India, even Ghana etc split MLS into its several branches like chemical pathology, med mcb, med para, haemo, cyto, biochem etc, professionalised dem n thus allow its graduates 2 practice in hospitals n med centres. Some of u r saying dat gradu8s of some of dis branches r only trained 2 b researchers but gradu8s of MLS can also b a researcher too in any or even all of d branches. Its totally rubbish. In as much as I'll like 2 b licensed in d nearest future, but trust me I'm much okay wit being a researcher wit a keen interest in medical parasitology afta my first degree in Zoology. To other non MLS bio n biomedical scientists, let's jx hope dat dis issue will b settled soon in Nigeria, but 4 nw 4get abt hospitals. There r other places 2 practise- lecturers n researchers in universities, polytechnics n research institutes, quality control officers in food, drinks n pharmaceutical industries, sales representatives in pharmaceutical coys, staffs n consultants in NGOs, ministries n agencies like CDC, UNICEF, WHO, WELCOME Trust, ministries of health, science, enviroment n agric etc. So many fields dat u can explore.
My advice is dat scrap n split MLS as a whole course, reform d curriculum n proffessionalise d splited branches 2 meet clinical standard at Bsc, Msc n Phd levels. By so doing, more jambites wud b accomodated n dis will reduce d back log of bio n biomedical science applicants every year, encourage division of labour n competitions which will bring efficiency in clinical practise in Nigeria n reduce uneployment. This is what is done in d develop world. Infact, these politics n discriminations in clinical practices r some of d reasons y our medical n clinical practise in Nigeria is poor compared 2 other parts of d world. #Shalom
