Haematology and Blood Transfusion


At inception of the College of Health Sciences (CHS) in 1980, the Department of Pathology (which later on became Department of Pathology & Medical Microbiology) was created and comprised of the four sub-specialities of Pathology i.e. Haematology & Blood Transfusion, Chemical Pathology & Immunology, Morbid Anatomy & Forensic Medicine and Medical Microbiology and Parasitology. But in 2013 and in line with the standards of NUC and MDCN, these four sub-specialists were converted to fully fledged departments and thus giving birth to the present department.
