Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Program Mission

The Mission of the Clinical Laboratory Sciences program is dedicated to preparing Clinical laboratory science leaders by providing innovative undergraduate program which is responsive to the national needs of the profession and delivered using modern instructional practices. The program is committed to the generation and dissemination of scholarly information thereby enhancing the education, practice, and standing of clinical science professionals thus promoting their important contribution to the health care delivery system. The theoretical knowledge and practical skills acquired by the students in the systematic study of the wide range of different disciplines of specialty, allow them to:

A. Conduct up to date laboratory test,

B. Interpret generated laboratory data and understand their relationship for the diagnosis of diseases in addition to high academic standards.

C. Emphasis is places on high principles of character, a sense of civic and ethic and moral responsibility, and a commitment to basic values of human life. As a result, the Clinical Laboratory Diagnosis Program will be pre-eminent professional resource in diagnostic laboratory science.

Program Goals

Medical Technology (Clinical Laboratory Sciences, CLAS) is a health profession with its solid foundation in supporting basic sciences of Chemistry, Biology, Statistics, Management, and Physics. Clinical Laboratory Science is a challenging career as well as a satisfying and demanding profession for persons with interest in the application of the basic sciences and major specific courses to the clinical diagnosis of disease. Clinical laboratory scientists contribute to the development and application of new technologies for the improved diagnosis of pathologic conditions and diseases. Specific courses focus on all of the major clinical disciplines including hematology, immunology, immunohematology, hemostasis, histopathology &cytology, clinical microbiology, clinical chemistry and body fluids. Each course is designed to prepare students for their roles as (highly qualified technologists/specialists) laboratorians.

The specific goals of the Clinical Laboratory Sciences Program are to:

  • Provide the students with the essential academic background, learning experiences & appropriate training to enable them to accomplish the recognized standards of a competent, self-directed Technologists.
  • Apply and provide safe, competent, & therapeutic care to the community using appropriate technology.
  • Exercise independent work, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
  • Develop and instill professional attitudes and sound working practices.
  • Communicate & Collaborate with individuals, patients, families through the teaching-learning process to augment and promote optimal health.
  • Develop and make use of resources and responsible funding/revenue utilization.
  • Apply management principles in promoting/directing care & in own medical sciences practice.
  • Exercise responsibility for the promotion of change in health care in response to social, cultural, political and economic factories.

Program Objectives

1.  To enroll qualified students in the program who possess motivation and potential for a career in CLS technology.

2. Central to the development and maintenance of CLINICAL LABORATORIES in the kingdom up to the international standards is the availability of qualified, competent, and well-trained Saudi national laboratory SPECIALIST (Technologist).

3. To provide the students CLS courses as well as the basic sciences supporting ones which enable them gain scientific knowledge and acquire technical skills in the medical field and also to accommodate the huge NATIONAL needs of technical staff in this field in comparison to other disciplines.

4. To develop awareness among CLS students that expertise of the CLS professionals needs to be always up dated due to the tremendous changes in CLS techniques and methods almost every day.
