    BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL OF MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE HOLY ROSARY HOSPITAL EMEKUKU

    The school of Medical Laboratory Technician as old as the independence of this great country Nigeria, was established in the year 1960 when the then instituted of Medical Laboratory Technology now the Medical Laboratory Science Council on Nigeria (MLSCN) was a branch of the London institute of Medical Laboratory Technology. Unfortunately, the prospects of the school were negatively impacted following the outbreak of the Nigerian-Biafran Civil war of 1966, which ultimately resulted to the closure of the school.

    However, when the civil war receded in the early 70’s, the hospital authority was courageous enough to re-commence academic activities in the school. Sequel to this, the school got approval and recognition to train Medical Laboratory Assistants in 1974 following re-accreditation, re-approval and re-appraisal of the then facilities and staff.

    Since 1974 till date, the school has had different heads/principals these: Mr. Plovin Onyekwere, Mr. Humphrey Nwawume, Dr. I.I Iruagba, Rev Sr. Christy Onyekwelu who later handed over to the incumbent Head of the school Rev. Sr. Mary Bernadette Lourdes Anwuluorah. These heads have been instrumental to the positive transformations the school has witnessed since inception. It is interesting to state here that the products of this institution have been representing above board both in character and in learning in every spheres of the country and beyond.

    Sequel to the recent increasing demand in the quality of health care delivery, the Medical Laboratory Assistant Holy Rosary Hospital deemed it necessary to upgrade the school to train medical Laboratory Technicians. Adequate steps were taken to ensure that this dream came through. Having critically analysed and acknowledged the efforts and giant strives taken by the school and the hospital to actualise this noble dream, the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigerian on 11th July 2011 paid an accreditation visit to the school that culminated  in the grant of provisional approval to commence the training of Medical Laboratory Technicians, on the condition to grant full approval to the school within two (2) years when all the recommendations of the council would be expected to have been fully implemented.

    Both the school and Hospital management  were delighted at this and ever since then have strived to ensure that all the recommendations of the council were implemented to ensure quality teaching and learning in the school.

    In November 2013, the Medical Laboratory Science Council on Nigeria (MLSCN) paid the school another round of accreditation visit to confirm our readiness to be granted full approval to train Medical Laboratory Technicians. Having tremendously improved on our infrastructure, staff and to a large extent implemented recommendations of the council, the school was granted full approval to train Medical Laboratory Technicians.

    It is a glaring fact that accreditation is a continues process ultimately aimed at improving/maintaining quality, the school made frantic efforts to correct even the most infinitesimal laps the team may detect in course of her assessment with utmost urgency. This granted us post accreditation in 2018.
