“During my 3 years course at MAHSA, I had pleasant experience, suitable ambiance for studies, a resourceful library, fully equipped lab, helpful, dedicated lecturers, most of all a compact well-structured syllabus, which have prepared me as marketable and knowledgeable MLT, I have realized it during my interviews, as I was able to answer the employer's question without any struggles. Phlebotomy training provided during college days was an added advantage, as most lab institution and hospitals required these criteria to recruit a MLT. Furthermore, during my college days lecturers have also given a lot of guidelines on how to cope with working life which is now very handy. I am truly satisfied with my choice 6 years ago, to do my diploma with MAHSA, which have now, given me a bright, promising future.”
