Medical Laboratory Technology (BS MLT) Nature of Work, Jobs, Subjects, Required Skills Career & Scope in Pakistan
Now a days doctors largely depend upon the medical reports only for the diagnosis of diseases. Before the introduction of DMLS degree (Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences) only Pathologists were given the job of lab in-charge, but now you can start your own medical laboratory or can get job of lab in charge after DMLS or BS MLT. BS Laboratory technology is also an alternative option for you but we shall recommend you to go for DMLS degree (Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences) as after the completion of DMLS degree you will be entitled to use the prefix of dr with your name.
Medical Laboratory Technology (BS MLT) Career, Scope, Jobs, Subjects & Skills Required
DMLS or BS MLT degree will elevate your social status. Its a most recommended degree and field for females as you can start your own business even in your drawing room too. Wife of my one friend had got BS Medical Technology degree and after marriage she is running a medical lab in the drawing room of her husband’s home. Its a best field for females in Pakistan as Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences have to work in labs only. No out door activity is involved in this field. That’ why in a conservative society like Pakistan its an ideal field for girls. Medical Laboratory Technology field has close connection with different fields of diagnostic sciences such as
Immunohematology (blood banks)
Medical Imagining Technology
DMLS (Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences)
DMLS is a five year program after FSc Pre Medical and at present only 50% marks are required for admission in DMLS degree. In Punjab, University of Lahore (UOL) and Imperial College are offering DMLS program. Females love to add the prefix of dr with their names for finding better lifer partner (Please don’t smile as its their right), so they must try for DMLS, DMUD (Doctor of Medical Ultrasound Diagnostic), (DRS) Doctor of Rehabilitation Sciences, DPT, Pharm-D, MID, DND or BHMS in case of failure in getting admission in medical or dental college.
BS Medical Laboratory Technology
If you do not have craze for the title of Dr then go for BS degree as it is offered in more universities and colleges and there is no difference in both these degrees as far scope is concern. BS degree was introduced in Pakistan in 2008 to replace the traditional BSc degree.
