DIMLT Graduates: Highly skilled medical technologists



Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology (DIMLT) students at SEGi College Kuala Lumpur are researching case studies to improve their clinical skills and knowledge of diseases such as syphilis, malaria, and dengue. The study’s goal is to provide an in-depth explanation of the patient’s diagnostic procedures, and it is utilised to develop a report and poster presentation for academic assessors. Students responded positively to the training, with 85% feeling more secure in their clinical findings knowledge and 80% believing their case study research skills had improved. 

The clinical instructor and lecturer in the DIMLT course, Yogeswary A/P Arumugam, supervises clinical placements and analyses students’ appearance, professional attire, presentation materials, content, confidence, and expertise during the poster presentation. The program’s performance demonstrates the college’s dedication to offering high-quality education and generating highly trained medical laboratory technologists who can succeed. 

The influence of the curriculum is shown in the success of its alumni, who thoroughly comprehend case diagnostic methods and laboratory findings. According to a Ministry of Health report, Malaysia has a medical laboratory technician shortage, with just 16,767 professionals employed in the country as of 2021. The innovative educational approach of the DIMLT program can address this issue by creating highly qualified medical professionals capable of satisfying Malaysia’s expanding healthcare needs. 

With the increasing global demand for medical laboratory technologists, programs like DIMLT can help bridge the healthcare gap and provide quality healthcare services. The program’s success at SEGi College Kuala Lumpur highlights the ability of innovative educational techniques to generate good change in the healthcare industry.
