Medical Lab Technicians Hold ‘Career Day’

MONROVIA, April 30 (LINA) - Medical Laboratory Technicians in Liberia will hold Career Day activities on May 1 and 5 in Montserrado and Bong Counties respectively.

A release issued in Monrovia said realizing the critical role of the Medical Laboratory Technicians, especially following the outbreak of Ebola in Liberia, the Human Resources for Health (HRH) Project of the Maternal Child Survival Program (MCSP) is supporting the activities.

The Career Day activities are being organized in collaboration with the Liberia Association of Medical Laboratory Technologist (LAMLT) and MCSP HRH-supported Pre-Service Training Institutions.

They include Phebe Paramedical Training Program, PTP, Stella Maris Polytechnic - Mother Pattern College of Health Science and Tubman National Institute of Medical Arts, TNIMA.

The Career Day provides this cadre of health service providers with a unique opportunity to increase public understanding of their roles and appreciation for clinical laboratory personnel. 

The program will also help to increase the deserved recognition of the profession as it supports improvement to the individual practitioner’s role, job satisfaction and contribution they make to the community.

Furthermore, the Career Day activities will also be used as a period to inform and educate medical colleagues and the public about medical laboratory work and the impact these dedicated skilled professionals have on overall patient care. 

The activities are mainly targeting Montserrado and Bong Counties where the three Medical Laboratory Training Schools are located. 

The Maternal Child Survival Program, a global effort to improve Maternal and Newborn Health outcomes funded by USAID, is working with the Government of Liberia and partners to strengthen health services. 

Its Human Resources for Health is working in Liberia specifically to improve health workforce readiness, with a focus on reinforcing entry-level Registered Midwives (RMs) and Medical Laboratory Technician (MLTs) Pre-Service Education.
