When I reflect on my four years in the MLS program, I conclude that this experience not only made me a better person, but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for the real life.
The program , the faculty members and the staff helped me to accomplish a goal that I thought i was out of reach. They helped me in living a proof that if you want something bad enough, you don't let anything stand in your way. Not even a war.
I found myself able to communicate, innovate, and collaborate in ways that enabled me to build a successful knowledge and communications through conferences, competitions and workshops with our supportive professors and classmates.I liked the hands-on approach of the course because it has taken my learning beyond theory. I have learnt to apply my knowledge through experiences in the labs, doing new researches, giving presentations and working in teams. I was challenged to discover a personality I didn't know I had. Those four years have broadened my horizon and really changed my view about many things.It was a wonderful time in my life, and the best educational experience I've had.

As part of the Medical Laboratory Sciences family at UOS and a proud alumnus of this department, I could say that my experience of four years was one of a kind. As a teenager, I was always fascinated and intrigued by science and how our body works; that was the main reason I entered the program. I always believed if I was given the right tools and the proper education, I will be able to diagnose any disease that may come my way. No matter what I'd say or do, I would not be able to acknowledge my professors who I owe so much for making me the person I am today. The Medical Laboratory Sciences program was a perfect fit for me and developed me into the analytical and researcher I am today. As learning never rests, I have become a person craving more knowledge and skills every day. All I aspire now is to be able to continue my education and pursue my post graduate degrees to become an essential member of a community that I could make a difference within in the future. I wish for the department to prosper and evolve as the years go on, providing future students with the opportunities to grow in our continuously advancing community of scientists.

One of the best things of studying MLS at UOS was that it´s diversity of students and the Faculty capability to meet and cooperate with the students to reach a successful education.
Furthermore, the college faculty were very positive and helpful at all times, helping out with a few tips and tricks that really helped me graduate in 3 & half years, being one semester late in need of guidance, through my college years at UOS.
College life at UOS was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life, not only because what you learn in class, but what you learn by meeting people from different parts of the world. These experiences have shown to be of use both in my social and professional life.

My time at the University of Sharjah made me improve myself throughout my four years in the College of Health Sciences, Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS). My journey included from learning individually, in groups, to attending seminars, conferences, and scientific events. It taught me how to be independent in my thinking either scientifically, or socially. The professors and teachers of MLS were always approachable if students needed any kind of help. The education and knowledge given by the professors were up to higher standards, making sure that students are more than ready for real life events working at hospitals, private clinics, and other health sectors. Of course, it was not always about studies and getting good grades, but it was about getting enough knowledge and enjoying what you learn. Most certainly, the faculty of MLS were a major factor in my learning curve in which they all made sure learning is supposed to be fun. I will never forget my time with all my dear professors and lecturers, because of them I am thankful for who I am now. Reem Sami Al HamidiDecember 2016
I did graduate from the UoS and I was one of the College of Health Sciences students. I studied Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) and it was an unforgettable period of my life. My appreciation and gratitude go blindly to MLS profs and staff as they did their best to teach, encourage and help me and my colleagues. MLS along side with its profs and teachers did really well in teaching us the medical part of our major as well as many other life-dealing aspects; such as how to think scientifically, work together as one group, and manage our times. And they are still there; ready to give us any help. To me, it is really hard to summarize all that great moments not only with my colleagues, but also with my profs and teachers. One thing I want all of you to be sure about; if the time just could go back, I will definitely choose nothing but the MLS.

Blessings come to people in different ways; mine was graduating from UOS as Medical Laboratory Scientist. Not only I was educated and mentored by qualified professors and doctors but also met great colleagues and friends along the way. Throughout the 4 years of my study I was taught by experienced staff, who made science sound like entertainment. With the knowledge and skills that I gained, I was hired in best hospital, University Hospital Sharjah, where it feels like home as I'm in the vicinity of my university... All thanks to great leaders I was honored to have. Best of all, I had met my lifetime friends.

Being part of the Medical Laboratory Sciences program in UoS was an unforgettable experience. The past 4 years equipped me with many skills needed
to prepare me for my career as a Medical Lab Scientist. I'll be forever grateful to my professors and lecturers for sharing not only their
knowledge but their own individual experiences as well. I'm hoping to one day repay the fruits of their labor in kind.
As of now , I am currently working at Latifa Hospital in the Hematology and Transfusion services unit where I get the chance to apply the theories , skills and knowledge gained.
