Why study Medical Technology at SSLC?

The four-year program is globally in demand and laboratory-oriented providing in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge on detection,  diseases through diagnostics processes. Since the program requires focus among the students, enrolment in each course is limited. This also enables students who start the professional sequence of courses to have sure internship placements on-site where they could get hands-on and ‘’real world” experience. On-campus courses are taught in state-of-the-art equipped classrooms and laboratories where students have all the opportunities to practice their skills prior to the internship. The college maintains affiliations in the Philippines and abroad. It is a member of the ASEAN Association of Schools of Medical Technology and the Philippine Association of Schools of Medical Technology (PASMET).  Students are members of the Philippine Society of Medical Technology Students (PHISMETH). SSLC is affiliated with the country’s notable hospitals such as the Philippine Heart Center, East Avenue Medical Center, and Las Piñas Doctors Hospital.

Medical laboratory science professionals are healthcare professionals that provide an essential role in  the field of medicine. They have a vast knowledge in all aspects of laboratory medicine.  They uncover vital laboratory information that assist physicians in patient diagnosis and treatment, as well as in  disease monitoring or prevention. Medical Laboratory science professionals are mandated to produce  an accurate and precise results that are needed in detecting various diseases using state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory procedures with sophisticated instrumentation. They are analyzing various  specimens like blood, urine, tissue and other body specimens which requires extensive knowledge of normal and abnormal physiology, correlation of laboratory data to specific disease. The areas of specialty for Medical Laboratory are Clinical Chemistry, Hematology, Immunohematology ,Clinical Immunology, Clinical Bacteriology and the emerging field of Molecular Diagnostics. BS Medical Technology is the pre program for students who want to take up Medicine because the professional courses are aligned with the Medicine. Curriculum advanced education like a Master’s Degree or Doctorate. One may also find rewarding careers in the field of education.

Student Testimonial

Tricia C. Del Ocampo

A plant needs to be taken care of well for it to bloom beautifully. Like a plant, I was carefully nurtured by SSLC to become who I am today. I didn’t just become a competent and globally competitive Medical Technologist but I also became someone who is ready to face the world. To my professors and mentors in SSLC I am forever grateful

The online platforms used such as MOODLE, google classroom, and google meet are satisfactory enough for daily use. As a student, having proper platforms for daily learning is important so that we may properly submit the needed requirements for each subject as well as collect the handouts posted by the professor. For me, the platforms are greatly appreciated since it rarely has any problems when in use.
