POLL: Lab Students and Lab Technicians!!
« on: March 10, 2008, 04:43:57 PM »
Laboratory medicine is generally divided into four sections, and each of which is further divided into a number of units.
  • Anatomic pathology: Three units are included here, namely histopathology, cytopathology, and electron microscopy. Academically, each unit is studied alone in one course. Other courses pertaining to this section include anatomy, physiology, histology, pathology, and pathophysiology.
  • Clinical Microbiology: This is the largest section in laboratory medicine; as it encompasses five different sciences (units). These include bacteriology, virology, parasitology, immunology, and mycology.
  • Clinical Biochemistry: Units under this busy section are instumental analysis, enzymology, toxicology and endocrinology.
  • Haematology: This small, yet busy, section consists of two units, which are coagulation and blood bank.

The Questions are:
1- What make you choose one from another & Why?
2- which department do you think is gonna needed in our country at this time?
3- Tell us your subspeciality in these departments?

Let me be the first person oo reply ka soo bixiyo topican ,,,,

marka hore departmentiga an jecalahay aniga oo mar walbana aan rajaynayo inan ka shaqayn doono waa Clinical Microbiology department.

1. What make you choose one from another & Why?

i chosed this department becouse clinical microbiology is  concerned with restoring and maintaining health. Broadly, it is the practical science of preventing and curing diseases, and it is the most important department in the lab ....

2. which department do you think is gonna needed in our country at this time?

Am not aware of the country since 2003 , lakin i think the facility of clinical microbiology whether in culturing of bacteria in bacteriology department  and the department of  mycology were both law in service , so i think this department is much needed in our home country and other departments like Hematology and biochemistry they used to be there any time, what the laboratories need is the Autmatic Analyzers for biochemistry and Automatic cell counters for Heamatology ,in  which our country is very poor of such instruments ...... but the  Anatomy pathology department either  histopathology or cytology is not much practiced in somalia ? there are no less number of laboratory technicians with the knowledge of such departments  but the problem is less Number of Pathologists which can determine the cellss or tissues under microscopy , But  doing histopathology slide is very easy and the requirements of it can be afforded....

3- Tell us your subspeciality in these departments?

I didnt get any subspeciality yet , i have just graduated in medical lab technology which is accompined departments together , but am planning to pursue my Master's  in either medical microbiology or clinical microbiology ....

1. i prefer clinical micribiology department bcoz most other departments became almost automated thus the work of technologists and technicians has become less hands-on and more analytical.

2. in my opinion i think clinical chemistry and molecular genetics because of lack of automated analyzers and qualified professionals

3. i am newly graduated thus i am not yet specialized in certain area.

for me i prefer haematology

first of all because the samples are blood not like other section especially in bacteriology and biochemistry they receive different samples

secondly i think is less dangerous than others labs

finally i hate pathology labs  when i was in colloge

2- which department do you think is gonna needed in our country at this time?
in my opinion haematology and biochemistry beacuse its the routine labs most diseases are appear in this labs


3- Tell us your subspeciality in these departments?


i am not working yet in any labs because i decide to complete the master degree after i graduated from colloge



thanks for the nice topic
