About the Programme
The Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT) is a 4 years undergraduate programme offered by the School of Allied Health Sciences (SAHS) Sharda University.
Bachelor in Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT) also called Clinical Laboratory Science is concerned with the diagnosis treatment and prevention of diseases through the use of clinical laboratory tests. In this programme the students learn to perform diagnostic analysis on body fluids which include hematological bacteriological immunologic chemical and microscopic tests that aid in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This programme also equips students with the knowledge and skills required to handle advanced lab equipments and perform accurate laboratory tests.
BMLT Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)
A under graduate student having qualified the BSc Medical Laboratory Technology examination should be able to:
- PEO1: Acquire comprehensive knowledge of structure and functions of human body, physiological and biochemical mechanisms involved in normal and abnormal health condition, knowledge of light microscopic and ultrastructure of human specimen. Knowledge of structure and functional correlation of blood constituents with disease process and be able to communicate the same clearly and with precision.
- PEO2: Be aware of contemporary advances and developments in the field of medical laboratory sciences.
- PEO3: Acquire knowledge of modern research techniques and be familiar with the recent advances in medical laboratory tests.
- PEO4: Inculcate habit of scientific enquiry and be able to identify lacunae in the existing knowledge in a given area.
- PEO5: Have acquired skills in interpreting the results to medical and paramedical professionals as Laboratory manager/ supervisor or health care administrator.
- PEO6: Have acquired skills in effectively communicating with the students and colleagues from various medical and paramedical fields as educational consultant or laboratory coordinator etc.
- PEO7: Have acquired skills of integrating laboratory tests with other disciplines of medical sciences as and when needed.
