Medical Laboratory Science Council Inducts 78 Babcock University Graduates

No fewer than 78 graduates of the Babcock University in Ilisan-Remo, Ogun State have been inducted   by the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria, to enable them practice in the country

Registrar of the Council  Mr Tosan Erhabor  who revealed this, called on Medical Laboratory graduates in Nigeria to remain diligent and focused in the performance of their duties despite the prevailing challenging situations in the country.

The registrar  stated that the Council would work with relevant stakeholders to improve the standards of medical laboratory science training in Nigeria in line with international best practices.

Similarly, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Ademola Tayo advised the inductees to always remember, that people will look up to them, respect what they do and say.  “People will trust you, confide in you, and appreciate your efforts.  You can do exceptional things for people if you don’t let the system weigh you down.

 Do well to set the needs of your patients before that of the system. You will be rewarded someday if you do that.”Professor Tayo emphasized that becoming a successful medical laboratory scientist does not depend on academic excellence alone.

 “While that is an advantage, it also depends on being effective communicators with a sound intellect and interest in science and technology.

Excellent eye-hand coordination, dexterity, and visual acuity are equally important to skillfully perform and analyze tests.”In addition, the vice chancellor stated that “as you go into the world to practice, remember that a critical factor of your success in your profession is collaboration.

 Your job requires you to collaborate very closely with physicians and medical laboratory technicians in diagnosing and monitoring disease processes, as well as monitoring the effectiveness of therapy.

 The vice chancellor also advised them to understand their work environment, since they are going to work in an environment different from the typical classroom setting and also work with human beings.
