Short description
 
 This is a four-year programme that leads to the award of Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Medical Laboratory Science.  The first year is devoted to foundation scientific training (e.g. Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry) and other General Education courses (e.g. English and Statistics).  The remaining years will be devoted to major subspecialty training in Medical Laboratory practice: Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology & Transfusion Science, Anatomical Pathology, and Medical Microbiology & Virology).  The training includes a clinical practicum in public/private medical laboratories.  There will also be a final year research project.  Graduates are eligible for registration as a Medical Laboratory Technologist “醫務化驗師” (Part II).  This statutory registration is a prerequisite for employment in local public and private health services.
