The studies are articulated mainly according to the 3 axes of biology, chemistry and biomedical sciences to which are added subjects such as mathematics and physics applied to the specific uses of the biomedical professions.
At the end of these 2 years, the student will be able to choose the option which best corresponds to his skills and affinities; as an option “Cytology”, all subjects belong to the biological and biomedical sciences while in the option “clinical chemistry”, additional training in chemistry is scheduled.
A large part of this final year is entrusted to specialists working in private, hospital or university laboratories.
Being a medical laboratory technologist means:
Be a high-level technician who puts his skills at the service of “kursus asasi sains” research centers, medical analysis laboratories or pharmaceutical industries
Perform, according to his personal qualities and aspirations, technical tasks of analysis, quality control, routine in the fields of biology, chemistry and medicine
Perform in a hospital or laboratory environment, analyzes allowing physicians to establish a diagnosis and ensure the follow-up of the disease as well as the treatments
The Bachelor – Medical Laboratory Technologist will be able to develop and carry out all the analyzes and in vitro examinations on samples mainly of human origin but also of animal, plant or environmental origin. He will be able to perform all the laboratory tests necessary for quality control. In addition, his technical and practical skills will enable him to be an essential partner in fundamental research work. The bachelor will therefore find its place not only in the medical field but also in the pharmaceutical, veterinary and agro-food fields.
Also, medical laboratory technologists can be found in more and more laboratories (clinical biology, medical research, biotechnologies, pharmaceuticals, agronomists, veterinarians, food industry, etc.).
The training also offers two options:
The Clinical chemistry option, which offers the bachelor versatility and immediate availability for work in traditional sectors.
The Cytology option, which allows the bachelor to specialize in cytology techniques including cytopathology, anatomo-pathology and cytogenetics.
The diploma is part of the legal framework determining access to the profession of laboratory technologist (Royal Decree of June 2, 1993 relating to the professional title and the qualification conditions needed for the workout of the profession).
Bachelors – Medical laboratory technologists can immediately work in hospital or private clinical biology laboratories, in medical and pharmaceutical research laboratories, whether university or not, in biotechnology laboratories, in laboratories in particular chemical industries, in anatomo-pathology and cytology laboratories, in laboratories attached to the legal community, etc.
