3-YEAR B.Sc Medical Laboratory Technology
in collaboration with
FORTIS HEALTHCARE

A hands-on program that focuses on various disciplines of diagnostic testing in a functioning laboratory integrating classroom courses with a one year compulsory rotatory internship at Fortis Hospital.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

A Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) is a healthcare professional who performs chemical, hematological, immunologic, microscopic, and bacteriological diagnostic analyses on body fluids. The technologist also performs equipment validations, calibrations, quality controls or run-by-run assessment, statistical control of observed data, and recording normal operations.

At Chitkara School of Health Sciences, a student for Medical Laboratory Technologist program will attend classroom courses for two years, and complete clinical rotations in their final year of study. This combination is called a 2+1 program. In clinical rotations, the student experiences hands-on learning in each discipline of the laboratory and, under supervision, performs diagnostic testing in a functioning laboratory. Although not compensated, a student in the clinical phase of training usually works 40 hours per week for 52 weeks, experiencing work as a full-time employee. At Chitkara School of Health Sciences, the MLT are promoted to become specialists, qualified by unique graduate education and/or additional training to perform more complex analyses than usual within a specific field.
