Southern Africa Nazarene University, in collaboration with the Government of Swaziland, established the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences to offer the Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Sciences in the Faculty of Health Sciences. This programme is aimed to bridge the gap in the Medical Sciences field in the country.
The United State Embassy assisted in renovation built and handed over to the University a state-of-the art Medical Science Laboratory in a ceremony where the Embassy was represented by the Ambassador and SANU by the Board of Governors. As a part of the donation, the United States also added microscopes for use by students in the lab and also clinical practice laboratories.
The programme has an intensive clinical attachment component where students are expected to attend lab practicals with the partner clinical sites across Swaziland.
