Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology in CMC Vellore’s Chittoor campus

Laboratory Technology is a health profession which deals with the identification, treatment and prevention of diseases with the help of clinical laboratory tests. These professionals assist doctors, scientists and research specialists in diagnosing diseases, thereby providing effective treatment for patients. About 70% of medical decisions are based on laboratory reports for which having a well trained professional in a good laboratory setup, is of utmost importance.

A Medical Laboratory Technologist will be required to work with a number of Automated Analysers and manual machines, which require a high level of skill and expertise.

The DMLT is approved by CMAI (Christian Medical Association of India) and is one of its leading courses. This course, started by CMAI in 1927, was the first medical technicians’ course conducted in India.

  • To provide skill - oriented training to students and thus create skilled professionals who will be able to manage and work in a variety of medical laboratory settings.
