Welcome from the Dean
The Faculty of Medical Laboratory Sciences was founded in 1966 under the name “School of Medical Laboratory Technicians” as a joint venture between the Faculty of Medicine,University of Khartoum and the Ministry of Health.
Its development was continued until in 1993 an ordinance was passed for the establishment of the College of Medical Laboratory Sciences an independent institution affiliated to the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.In 1997,it was merged with the University of Khartoum as the Faculty of Medical Laboratory Sciences (FMLS).
The Faculty of Medical Laboratory Sciences offers preparation for careers in medical (clinical) laboratory sciences. A career in medical laboratory sciences is a great way to combine an aptitude for science with the desire to help others. Medical Laboratory Scientists, also known as clinical laboratory scientists, are highly skilled professionals who perform analytical tests on blood, tissue, and body fluids to provide laboratory information for the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of human diseases. There also is a growing trend for medical lab scientists to perform wellness laboratory testing aimed at preventing disease.
The primary goal of the Faculty of Medical Laboratory Sciences is to provide the community with medical laboratory scientists who are prepared to enter the health-care work force as qualified clinical laboratory practitioners and who meet the requirements for certification in their profession. Medical lab scientists are in demand in hospital laboratories, reference clinical laboratories, physician office laboratories, public-health agencies, university research laboratories, and in industry in laboratory, sales, and customer-support positions.
