Aims and Characteristics


The aim of the MMLS program is to equip students to become qualified medical laboratory technologists (MLTs), responsible for conducting tests accurately, analysing results and providing essential information for patient diagnosis and treatment. They also play a role in maintaining quality control, managing laboratory equipment and data, and collaborating with healthcare professionals to ensure optimal patient care. 

MMLS students are cultivated as lifelong learners and critical evaluators of professional and scientific healthcare literature, enabling them to engage in research, analyse information from various sources and apply it to clinical practice. Through a strong sense of professional commitment, our graduates deliver high-quality services and contribute to the advancement of the MLT profession.


This is the only full-time postgraduate programme in Medical Laboratory Science offered by Hong Kong Government-funded universities. In addition to a comprehensive theoretical foundation, the curriculum incorporates practical training and clinical attachments in Hong Kong hospitals’ laboratories. Students will acquire the skills to connect theoretical knowledge with practical applications, enabling them to effectively apply their knowledge of laboratory medicine.
