The international training programme at LabMedExpert is an initiative set up in 2021 by Mr. Kunle Akanbi, the training coordinator of the Organization. The programme aims to recruit science graduates to be trained in the fields of Histology and Microbiology for about 7 months. The candidates should have an undergraduate degree or be enrolled in a university to apply for this programme. The students can carry out their final year project and dissertation here at LabMedExpert. The entire training is split into two phases.

  • Phase 1: Online training for a period of 6 months comprising of the theory sessions where the theoretical knowledge and the basics of the courses are gained.

  • Phase 2: Hands-on-skills intensive practical training at one of LabMedExpert laboratories in the U.K for a period of 5-6 weeks.

The Phase 1 of this training program will enable students to apply for the practical oriented training and equip the students with a CPD accredited certificate which qualifies them for the Phase 2 course at LabMedExpert in the fields of microbiology or Histology in the U.K.

The key aim of the programme is to train international students on biomedical techniques that would enable them to gain U.K laboratory experience in a U.K diagnostic-settings laboratory.

The skills have its benefits in

  • Job purposes within the U.K at any Biomedical Laboratory.
  • further studies such as Masters or PhD scholarship in the U.K and other parts of the world.

The students will work on training modules as listed below under the corresponding group. They will work independently alongside existing research team and contribute to the team’s full time bench work. This training will help the candidates get trained in various histology, microbiology, and molecular techniques
