    • Godwin,

      It is okay to study Medical Laboratory Science at a Federal, State or Private university.

      The choice is yours and depends on your choice and finance.

      But, you would want to ensure that the school is properly accredited to run the programme.

  2. Greetings!
    I watched your short video there seems to be some confusion about the point you were talked, (MLT can’t open a Laboratory). Rather say Medical Lab Technician cannot open Laboratory instead of MLT.
    There is BSc MLT, Bachelor of Medical Lab Technology a 3 years program and six months internship in abroad which is more regarding than Bachelor of Medical Lab Scientist globally nowadays.

    Make some clarifications between Medical Lab technician and Medical Lab Technologist please 🙏 .
