Introduction

Application of modern scientific methods and techniques in the expeditious diagnosis and treatment of disease and illness is one of the prime reasons for the outstanding progress in medicine during the last few decades .The Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences of the Prince Sultan Military College of Health Sciences is committed to providing this invaluable service.

Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) Program, at Prince Sultan Military College of Health Sciences, involves a one-year Pre-Clinical and a three-year Clinical Course of study, as well as a one-year internship in a hospital. On completion of this training, the CLS graduate can assume the post of Clinical Laboratory Scientist in the Medical Laboratory of hospitals, clinics, forensic and public health departments or quality control sections of the food and water industries.

The CLS Program involves the systematic study of a wide range of subjects related to the scope of the Clinical Laboratory Science. Theoretical aspects in most of the courses are underpinned by a high level of training in practical skills.
