@Dr Kathy
what gave you that impression. if you're re refering to one of my earlier posts on this thread, then i'm afriad you misunderstood my point.
all i was trying to say that medical lab scientists are most under-appreciated out of all the medical professionals.
i have nothing but respect for medical professionals especially the doctors and surgeons but other fields also deserve theif fair share of kudos.
cheers smiley

Any physician or patient who doesn't appreciate members of your field is ignorant of the mechanizations and steps involved in patient diagnosis.smiley

Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by dominique(f): 9:44pm On Nov 25, 2009
thanks Dr Kathy, thats really comforting smiley

pls i need ideas guys, i was called for an aptitude test in Lagos state college of Medicine for the post of a lab technologist this Saturday. pls does anyone have an idea on how the test format will be. pls i only have a few days to figure what to do. time is of the essence. thanks
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by chynenye(f): 4:45pm On Nov 29, 2009
@ dominique, I'm really sorry its late but i believe it went well. The questions are usually what you are expected to know as a med lab sct and some current affairs. Most times the problem is not passing the test but "who do you know".Well, i strongly believe that you will be successful with God on your side.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by chynenye(f): 5:02pm On Nov 29, 2009
@ nice, similar questions have been treated on this forum. Its no longer possible for anyone to do a professional course as a pre-requisite for registration with the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria. Neither is an M.Sc accepted. The only solution is through a direct entry into a second yr class or through JAMB.

Hi Friend,
I write to wish you compliments of the season and a happy new year.
I also want to thank you for being part of my life. You are simply wonderful.
As you already know, the year is already counting by the day. It is your responsibility to make this year your best year ever.
Here is a simple blueprint that can empower you to get the best this year:
1. Seek The Lord

2. Set The Limits

3. Strengthen Yourself

4. Study and Learn

5. Stretch The Limits

6. Shun Laziness

7. Shin As Light.

Seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness because you cannot have true success without Him.
Set goals for the new year. Time is life. It is not to be wasted on frivolities.
Surround yourself with people who agree with your dream and vision.
Find time to read good books to develop yourself.  Take bold steps to go the extra mile in whatever you lay your hands on. Always give the best.
Say an emphatic No to laziness and your productivity will improve. Let your light shine and stay away from evil deeds. Whatever you want men to do to you, do to them likewise. That is the golden rule for successful living.
I look forward to finding laughter in your mouth by the time we'll breast the tape for the end of this year.

Thanks bernard08 for your multivational word, God bless you.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by adajud: 4:18pm On Jan 22, 2010
Hi colleagues, am so glad that a forum such as this do exist, as in, pertaining this noble profession.

How i wish the body, i mean the council and national association, have access to what is bn discussed here.

There are so many issues and topics yet untapped. starting from the highest body, i.e, the council to the year one student in the university studing this course and other health-related issues.

As for people like us, we've bn made to lose hope in the profession.
wishing u guys great success in your desire and goals in taking this profession to greater heights.

God bless! bernard, dominique, chinenye and others WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

don't mind my late reply to your post. I welcome you to this forum. Please keep visiting so that the flag could be kept flying.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 3:17pm On Feb 27, 2010
The month of February is coasting to a graceful end. Please let's renew our practicing license. This is the only way we can commit ourselves more to the profession and prove that we are real professionals.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 3:21pm On Feb 27, 2010
On monday 22nd february 2010, the Nigerian tribune reported that the Senate of the University of Ilorin has approved the commencement of the degree programme in Medical laboratory science starting from the 2011/2012 session.
This piece of glad tidings will interest all medical laboratory scientists in Nigeria and abroad. Certainly, more opportunities that will last long will be opened for more Nigerians at home and abroad seeking opportunities in Medical Laboratory Science. It is sure that our colleagues with post-graduate degrees will be employed to lecture when the programme kick off.

Did anyone know when this year boimedical day will take place and venue.?
Also, has council flag off their website now cos I learnt that they will host it early this year. if yes, kindly post it here.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 4:12pm On Mar 16, 2010
Welcome to the forum. As for your querry, there are several M.Sc. degree options for you depending on your specialization. Most universities in Nigeria offer post-graduate degrees in Medical microbiology, chemical pathology, haematology and more recently histopathology.
Check out for adverts in Nigerian newspapers. University of Ilorin, Calabar, Benin, Ambross Ali, University of Nigeria Nsuka lead the pack in this direction.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 4:21pm On Mar 16, 2010
I am not sure of the date for the biomedical day celebration yet but be sure it will hold at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, Yaba, Lagos.
The website of the council has not been launched. You can confirm through google search.

@Ogechike and Nnewa,
I wish to personally welcome you to the forum. I'm glad that young medical laboratory scientists are finding it as a great resource centre on issues concerning medical laboratory science. Please feel free to participate and contribute your own quota to the development of the forum. Pass the word round to others yet to know of its existence.
Now to your question. Look around for internship placement in any of the teaching hospitals closest to you or federal medical centre. I wish you best of luck.

@Nnewa and Bernad, thanx
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by Bobbyaf(m): 9:24pm On Apr 10, 2010
So what is the difference between you professionals and those who are Medical laboratory Technologists? How different are the job descriptions?
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 1:32pm On May 04, 2010
Welcome to this forum.
The profession of medical laboratory science had a very humble beginning in Nigeria. It was birthed by the military government through decree 56 of 1968. Then, it was a middle level manpower and the professionals called medical laboratory technologists in line with the British model.
Over the years, the profession had witnessed significant change in scope of training and practice to comform with modern changes in laboratory diagnoses.
Government in appreciation of the evolution and radical changes in the profession changed the name of the professionals to medical laboratory scientists through decree 59 of 1999. Prior to this time, training of medical laboratory scientists had shifted to the universities in most part of Nigeria except the South-West.
A bold step was further taken by government in 2003 by the signing into law of the Medical Laboratory Science Council Of Nigeria Act 11 of 2003 to fully transform the profession into a chartered status which effectively moved the professionals from middle level manpower to high level manpower.
With this, training of medical laboratory scientists become exclusive to the university.
Graduates train for 5years after which they undergo a mandatory intership program prior to NYSC.
As a result, professionals can now reach the peak of their career which is now wide open.
The scope of work is well documented in the scheme of service for each cadre of medical laboratory scientist from Medical Laboratory Scientist 1 to Director of Medical Laboratory Services.
