The history of the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences goes back to 1986 with the Establishment of Jordan University of Science and Technology, where the department was hosted by The Faculty of Medicine. The undergraduate and graduate programs in this department enhanced the quality and reputation of higher education in the country through cooperation with other higher education institutions and well recognized hospitals, and promoted quality standards in the field of clinical medical laboratory technology.
Our Allied Dental Sciences programs prepare the student for work as a valuable member of the dental health care team and for diverse career opportunities. In order to expose students to the most modern equipment and advanced treatment techniques, the department became highly equipped with updated dental technologies to meet the challenges in these health professions. The department of Allied Dental Sciences offers two programs in Allied Dental Sciences and Dental Technology. Moreover, this department is providing preventive, educational, and therapeutic services to the public.
