Course Description

The increase in the occurrence of existing diseases and the continual emergence of new or exotic diseases and re-emergence of old diseases place increasing demands on healthcare delivery. In Malaysia, there has been rapid growth in the healthcare system over the past few years. An efficient laboratory service is essential for a good healthcare system.

Appropriate healthcare management relies greatly on results of clinical laboratory investigations and patients’ lives may depend on the experience and expertise of the Biomedical Scientist.

Malaysia has a vision to become a developed country by 2020. Much emphasis is given to various high-technology projects including biomedical research. Promotion of biomedical research is essential for progress of medicine and advancement of healthcare.

The Biomedical Scientist, equipped with the appropriate knowledge and expertise, evolves with the changing trends in modern technology to fulfill the trust and reliance expected of them.
