Your career as a medical laboratory scientist
Medical laboratory scientists play a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, working as part of a team with doctors, pathologists, scientists, technicians and laboratory assistants.
How you will learn
You'll undertake two semesters of supervised professional practice clinical placement across your third and fourth years to give you work-ready skills and experience in a diagnostic pathway.
The highlight of my studies has been the 40 weeks' work placement undertaken at St. Vincent's Hospital within the Anatomical Pathology Department. At the end of my placements I was also lucky enough to get a full-time job offer!
