Current Position: Candidate for MS-Microbiology and Immunology at AUB, Lebanon
“AUB's education is not restricted to textbooks. You meet new people, you start seeing things from a different perspective, you form new opinions on old ideas, you try your best, you succeed… You simply become a better-prepared person. And MLSP was a bright spot during my time in AUB. It taught me how to properly manage my time, how to better work in a group, how to motivate myself to get work done every day, and that's just the non-academic part. Academically, MLSP handed me the knowledge and skills to pursue any health-related field. I went with Microbiology, but you add to it Public Health, Haematology, Medicine, Physiology, Biochemistry, or stick to Medical Laboratory. You get the luxury of choice after completing your undergraduate studies in Medical Laboratory Sciences, and whatever you choose, you'd be confident in."

Current Position: Medical Student at AUB, Lebanon
“When I reflect on my three years at the Faculty of Health Sciences at AUB, I can't but be grateful for how the MLS program shaped me into becoming a better person. When I arrived to FHS, I was welcomed by a warm faculty and helpful advisors that guided my way and eased my university experience. I chose to enter the Medical Laboratory Program as a Pre-Medical student due to the substantial medical background it offers. Through our classes with incredibly supportive professors who were a second family, I was challenged to discover more and be more curious. This program helped my transition into medical school by making me a well-rounded student with a sturdy base in the sciences and the humanities.
Being part of FHS will change you forever, you get introduced to a new family that will always push you to be a better student, person and citizen. This major will open a lot of doors for students, whether make them ready to join the workforce or for post graduate studies. You will leave this faculty with a broad set of skills and new perspective that will make you stand up from the pack wherever you might go. I will always be grateful for FHS and my mentors in the program who helped me all along."
