There is a very large skill gap in India with respect to the requirement and the availability of skilled Medical Laboratory Technologists and Technicians. The Healthcare sector is largely dependent on the results of laboratory tests used to support diagnosis in patient care as well as medical research. The test results therefore should be reliable, accurate and reproducible. Generation of such ‘quality’ results involves a step wise process of meticulous planning, perfect execution and thorough checking of results. The Medical Laboratory Technology is an allied health/paramedical profession and is a vital tool in the diagnosis and study of the various diseases for proper treatment. In the rapidly growing area of scientific knowledge and skills, laboratory science is an imperative area of study leading to generation of skilled Medical Laboratory Technologists.

Considering the immense requirement of such trained professionals, the Department of Health and Life Sciences, TeamLease Skills University is offering a 1 year (2 Semester) Diploma Program aims at teaching and training candidates in Medical Laboratory Technology not only to impart theoretical knowledge but focusing on the practical training of latest Medical Laboratory testing methodologies and techniques.

The Program is designed with specific inputs, requirements and recommendations from the industry, based on the latest technologies available and in practice, for individuals interested in entering the field of Clinical laboratory science. The program will cover not only the basics of para-clinical subjects such as Haematology, Biochemistry, Pathology, Microbiology, Serology and Blood Banking, but also an intensive practical training along with the basics of computer application relevant to the requirement at the work place. The program will be offered to candidates who have cleared their 10+2 examinations with Science subjects regardless of the medium of instruction. Taking into account both globalization as well as digitalization, as well as the nature of the job at a Medical Laboratory involving generating reports, deciphering information related to continual up gradation of sophisticated instrumentation as well as interacting with both the patient and the pathologist, the role Communication Skills as well as basic Computer skills are a requirement of the job. The program is designed in such a way aiming at not only teaching the basics of English but also grooming and overall personality development of the candidate. The 1 year Diploma will ensure that the candidate is Job-ready by undergoing a monitored and evaluated 3 months On the Job Training as part of the Diploma Program. All these features make this Diploma a unique and focused skill development based program mutually advantageous for both the candidate as well as the related Healthcare Skill Sector.

Program Objective

  • It is a 1 year program where the student will undergo on job training in industry for a period of 3 months.
  • The key difference between the DMLT offered by TLSU and other similar programs will be the teaching pedagogy which will be skill based as it will be based on the vision of “putting India to work”.
  • On completion of DMLT program, students will be able to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of body matter such as fluid, tissue, and blood; as well as micro-organism screening, chemical analyses, and cell count using various techniques of Medical Laboratory Technology.
  • This program will provide skill oriented training to students and thus provide skilled professionals who will be able to work in a variety of laboratory settings.
