The Med­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science Coun­cil of Nigeria (MLSCN) has ad­vised grad­u­ates of for­eign in­sti­tu­tions to equip them­selves with knowl­edge that en­riches their prac­tice in the coun­try.

Act­ing Reg­is­trar of the Coun­cil, Sir Tosan Erha­bor, gave the ad­vice at the in­duc­tion of grad­u­ates of for­eign in­sti­tu­tions in Abuja.

The in­ductees had com­pleted the Coun­cil’s manda­tory train­ing and qual­i­fy­ing ex­ams.

Erhabour said that it was nec­es­sary for grad­u­ates of for­eign in­sti­tu­tions to go through the process of adap­ta­tion and in­te­gra­tion as part of the pre-req­ui­sites for li­cen­sure.

He also an­nounced that that the cur­ricu­lum for the Doc­tor of Med­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Science Pro­gramme has been de­vel­oped and is await­ing the ap­proval of rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties.

Min­is­ter of State for Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire rep­re­sented by his Se­nior Tech­ni­cal As­sis­tant, Dr Shuaibu Bel­gore, said med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory sci­en­tists are very im­por­tant in health­care de­liv­ery.

The Pres­i­dent, As­so­ci­a­tion of Med­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Sci­en­tists of Nigeria (AMLSN), Dr Bassey Enya Bassey, urged the in­ductees not to com­pro­mise in­tegrity in the course of prac­tice.
