SCOPE & CAREER PROSPECTS:

There are distinct advantages to any student opting to pursue B.Sc. (Hons.) Medical Laboratory Technology program. These are;

  1. Laboratory Technology is a fast-track medical profession – the degree program takes only four years to complete, and upon completion, these professionals have opportunity to enter multifarious careers.
  2. A wide variety of options is available to the students ranging from career in hospital labs to sales and marketing, and pharmaceuticals to veterinary and agriculture labs.
  3. Recruitment of health professionals is soaring in the Gulf Countries and Saudi Arabia. There is a great demand of Medical Technologists in Germany, Canada, USA and various European Countries.
  4. Laboratory Technologists are in very high demand world over. It is one of the fastest growing professions all over the world as due to population growth, the disease burden is increasing. As a result, sophisticated technology in medical labs is being utilized to not only detect the disease but also monitor the treatment outcomes.

Unlike other professions, the infrastructure required to train a laboratory technologist is highly sophisticated, and requires specialized centers where modern laboratory equipment and related paraphernalia is adequately provided. Appropriately, qualified faculty, who can impart appropriate training to the trainees, with relevant experience is also a pre-requisite. Because of these factors, there are only a limited number of training slots available for Laboratory Technologists in Pakistan.

As a Result, there has always been a shortage of qualified Laboratory Technologists in the country, which is likely to persist for years to come.
