It is one of the diagnostic methods contributing to clinical diagnosis and contributing to the treatment and prevention of diseases.

  1. Clinical laboratory sciences include several different disciplines, which are divided into four main tracks:

A- Medical Microbiology: -

It deals with the study of pathogenic microorganisms, where the student is acquainted with the methods of isolation and identification of these pathogenic microbes and methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention

B- Clinical Biochemistry:

It is concerned with studying the chemical changes that occur in the human body as a result of diseases by measuring the concentration of different chemicals using the latest methods of measurement and analysis.

C- Hematology and blood transfusion

Hematology is concerned with studying the pathological changes that affect the red and white blood cells and platelets such as anemia and leukemia. Blood transfusion is also concerned with the safe ways of transferring blood and its components from blood donors to those in need.

D- Histology and pathology.

It studies the cells and tissues and the changes that occur in these cells and tissues in case of disease

Department Supervisor Message

In the name of Allah, the merciful, and his prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him

On behalf of the department's staff academic and technical body, and on behalf of its students and students affiliated with it, we would like to welcome you to the website of Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences in Qurayyat.

The scope of health care services in Saudi Arabia has expanded significantly over the past decades aiming to provide comprehensive health care to all Saudis, therefore there is an increasing number of hospitals and clinics on a continuous basis, which is accompanied by the growing demand for graduates of medical laboratories. The Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences, Jouf University, Qurayyat, was established by Decree No. 10/50/1429, on the 10th of Rajab 1429H to satisfy this demand by training Saudi cadres and qualifying them to work well in the field of medical laboratories locally, nationally and internationally.

The Clinical Laboratory Sciences Program is one of the most important medical specialties in the medical system, by providing up to date scientific and practical knowledge of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human diseases. This scientific program provides the concepts of knowledge to investigate the structure and metabolic activities of the human body in relation to health and disease that is done through teaching students different scientific topics: histology and anatomy, hematology and blood bank, pathology of cells and tissues, human genetics, immunology, microbiology and clinical chemistry.

Finally, we hope that this site will provide information for the students interested in this program about Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences and scientific activities, academic activities and social and cultural activities. We would like to welcome you to our website
