ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Medical Laboratory Technology which is also called Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) is an allied health profession and is an important subject in the field of Medicine. In each system of Medicine, diagnosis of disease is primary step because no treatment is possible without a proper diagnosis. It is the Medical Laboratory Technical staffs, who perform this important task by various scientific tools and techniques. In modern world of Technology the Diagnosis, Treatment & Prognosis of various Diseases depends on results of the investigations carried out in a Clinical Laboratory. Thus Medical Laboratory Technical staff plays a key role in the field of Health care.
As per demand the numbers of skilled laboratory professionals are few thereby increase the scope of new intellect professionals.
The department of MLT, IGTAMSU have full-fledged separate laboratories i.e. Pathology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Anatomy & Physiology which is well – equipped and performing many basics and advance techniques to the students.
The career prospects in this field depend on the academic and technical skills of the technologist/technician. These days with the growth in the private and public sectors there are so many hospitals, nursing homes, blood banks, pathology laboratories etc. the demand for laboratory technicians is on the up-swing. With adequate knowledge and experience, Medical Laboratory Technologists can advance to supervisory or management positions in laboratories and hospitals. They can also work as:
- Laboratory manager
- Laboratory Consultant
- Laboratory Supervisor
- Health care Administrator
- Hospital Outreach coordination
- Laboratory information system Analyst/Consultant
- Educational consultant / coordinator etc.
Additional opportunities are available in molecular diagnostics, molecular biotechnology companies and in vitro fertilization laboratories as well as in research labs. In the clinical areas, drug testing, therapeutic drug monitoring and biogenetics are just a few of the specialties with openings. In industry, medical technologists are needed for positions in product development, marketing, sales, quality assurance, environmental health and insurance, among others.
Welcome to the department of Paramedical Sciences (MLT) at Indira Gandhi Technological and Medical Sciences University, Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh. I extended a very warm welcome to you for visiting the department’s website.
It gives me immense pleasure to lead the Department of Paramedical Sciences (MLT). I would like to highlights about the department. Medical laboratory professionals collaborate very closely with physicians in diagnosing and monitoring disease processes, as well as monitoring the effectiveness of therapy. Areas of medical laboratory training include microbiology, biochemistry, hematology, immunology, transfusion medicine, toxicology, and molecular diagnostics and plays a very critical role in the functioning of any healthcare facility.
Our university have a unique like a prism reflecting the manifold shades of learning and co-curricular activities. Our department is working very hard towards the goal of providing innovative and quality education with high standard to achieve academic excellence in the field of Medical Laboratory Technology and to provide the highly skilled profession in the service of Nation.
The process of learning is extremely important in life. What you learn, how you learn and where you learn play a crucial role in developing ones intellectual capability, besides career. The excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind ensuring quality education such as interaction among students, parents and staff.

Thus we are confident that our students will emerge as assets not only to this university and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large.
The periodically updated curriculum imparts technical knowledge to the students and the application based environment in the state of the art laboratories complements the same. The students are motivated to participate in paper presentation, workshops and seminars that are essential to maintaining proficiency. Cultural activities are also promoted through various departmental, university level and community level too.
hold firm belief in our ability to succeed, and we nurture an attitude of self – reliance, confidence, commitment and responsibility to serve health care system as paramedics.
