The department of Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) was established in 2016, and the first batch of students were enrolled in the first semester 2016/2017. The decision to open the department came after careful consideration for the need for well-educated and well  trained graduates in the field of Medical Laboratory Science and Medical Analysis both locally and regionally and to be a nucleus for faculty of Medicine.

The department offers at this stage only graduate programme (BSc. In Medical Laboratory Science) and hopefully a post graduate programme will follow soon. The first intake of students in the department exceeded 140 students. The department  is in the process of establishing a number of well-equipped laboratories in Medical microbiology, Clinical Haematology, Clinical Biochemistry, Physiology, Tissue and Microtechnique .

The department is also looking forward to strengthen the work force with new and well trained members of staff and technicians. Beside teaching the staff at the department are engaged in scientific research in all disciplines of medical laboratory Science.
