VISION STATEMENT:


   A collaborator of the Dominican learning community, committed to provide a dynamic, excellent, dedicated and professional program for the formation of skilled and competent Medical Technologists/Clinical Laboratory Scientists performing each aspect of their profession with dedication and compassion, inspired by the love of compassionate Jesus – Healer and Teacher




MISSION STATEMENTS:


   We, the students, faculty, and dean of the Medical Laboratory Science Department, commit ourselves to continually:

  • enhance the classroom-based and internship education to prepare students to successfully pass the government licensure examination as Medical Technologist/Medical Laboratory Scientist.build a nurturing Christian community with passion for truth, service, and excellence;
  • provide the Philippines and the world with principled and ethical professionals with a high standard of excellence demonstrating commitment, confidence, and sound judgment, through innovative programs of instruction and formation, research, and community extension services;
  • offer students an environment and atmosphere that embodies the values of academic excellence, integrity, freedom, cooperation, and responsibility;
  • set standards of excellence required for the profession of Medical Technology and Medical Laboratory Science and be soon recognized as the Center of Excellence in Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science Education;
  • improve the hands-on clinical education (internship program) of the 4th-year students so they may develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and values of a Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science professional through proper coordination and consultation with affiliated Hospital –Based and NonHospital-Based Laboratories and maintaining harmonious relationship with the training staff;
  • produce professionals who are satisfied with working behind-the-scenes, obtaining ultimate satisfaction through helping and serving others by applying their skills.



DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:


   This is a 4-year degree program which aims to develop a foundation in the fundamentals of medical laboratory science and to make it responsive to the demands for manpower in the paramedical service utilizing an array of complex precision instruments and a variety of highly innovative technologies to determine the presence, extent, or absence of disease and provide data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. The graduate will have the opportunity to work in the clinical laboratories of hospitals and clinics, in the research centers, academic institutions, drugs and diagnostic industries, forensic laboratory and other health related institutions. The BMLS is most ideal as a preparatory course leading to the study of Medicine.




THE LOGO:


   The Logo is the official symbol of the department. There are four colors in the logo – blue, white, yellow, and black. Blue and White are the official colors of San Pedro College, Blue is the symbol of loyalty to the Gospel of Christ, and White stands for purity that characterizes the spirit of serving in love, and the love that characterizes the spirit of service. Yellow symbolizes wisdom, like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity of decision-making and awareness of responsibilities for human lives. The shade of yellow brings joy and happiness obtaining ultimate satisfaction through helping and serving others by applying their skills. Black is associated with mystery and the unknown which describes the nature of work of the Medical Technologists/Clinical Laboratory Scientists in searching for the underlying causes of illness and disease to aid clinicians in giving accurate diagnosis and treatment to patients.



   The Microscope stands for the Medical Technology/Medical Laboratory Science Profession. The Staff of Asclepius (single serpent around a rod) symbolizes healing. The medical technologist performs a full range of laboratory tests-from simple blood tests, to more complex tests to uncover patient diseases through the use of microscope. However, with the advancement of technology nowadays, medical technologists, in their search for data on a patient's health, do much more than examine specimens through a microscope; they operate complex electronic equipment, computers, and precision instruments. All of these are geared to bring back patients’ health.


   At the base of the microscope is the school motto “Love Serves” which is derived from the spirituality of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, a Carmelite, whose love for God dominated her every act. The founding of the school was attributed to the intercession of St. Therese, the patroness of the college.
