If you want to do MLS, go buy jamb form and fill MLS as your first choice. Try get good score in jamb and post utme.
You can do Masters in Medical biochemistry but it doesn't make you a Medical Laboratory Scientist.

Why do you want to switch to Medical Lab Science?
Are you marginalised?
I hope the MLS won't avoid this thread

The discrimination that exists in Laboratory Sciences are not heard of. But the Biochemist, Laboratory. Technician, microbiologist etc working in the hospital will rather contribute money to fight against the doctors than to seek equality in theor department first.

Options for you:

1. DE into 200lv MLS Degree Program

2. Jamb Admission/Preliminary routes into 100lv MLS programme

Like someone rightly said, doing masters in any MLS aspect doesn't make you a professional Lab Scientist. The same way a BSc. Chemistry Graduate doesn't become a Pharmacist by doing masters in pharmaceutical chemistry

I hope you find peace. Merry Christmas!

Pick a Direct Entry jamb form, you'll enter into 200L mls programme. There's no other way.

A biochemistry graduate cannot become a MLS professional, go and get a DE form or MLS UTME.

I'm a microbiologist with my masters but I'm getting a DE form next year for Radiography.
Microbiology, biochemistry and the likes are useless courses in this country.

You are a wise and informed fellow my guy, those aforementioned courses aren't entire useless but they are worthless in the health sector cause they hardly fit in anywhere just few hospitals that may recruit them as scientific officers in the lab to be causing headache to the lab scientists.

All I see is a bittered doctor trying to cause a fight.
Biochemistry is different from Medlab.
1)One is under faculty of natural science while one is in faculty of medical sciences .
2) Biochemistry is 4yrs course while medlab is 5yrs.
3) medlab have knowledge of Anatomy, biochemistry and physiology which biochemistry graduates lack.
Most nurses are clinically sound than physicians and it still won't make them to cut corners to start practicing as a physician.

Men this was really frustrating for biochemist then as the medical laboratory scientist will tell u that u have no business with the lab without a licence......I just wonder y they cancel the associate programme.

You can also write ASCPi exams & become a certified Med Lab Scientist if you intend to work in US.
Note: Specific for USA only
But DE is a better option in Nigeria.
I wish you well Sir.
