As part of visiting new and rebuilding projects at Wollo University, the Deans and Directors in the Academic Vice President Office visited the brand new pathology laboratory equipment’s in the College of Medicine and Health Sciences.
The new rebuild laboratory projects is a major step toward establishing a Center of Academic Excellence in the College of Medicine and Health Science. The new laboratory will provide practical training, education and research facilities for the college’s BSc, Medicine, MSc/MPH, PhD and Medical specialty students as well as its academic staff.
The new pathology laboratory may provide also a new community service with reasonable price for public and private hospital clients in South wollo, North Wollo, Wag Himira, Oromia Special Zone and Afar Regional State. Currently, pathology tests for residents of these areas are slow and expensive, because they have to send to laboratories found in Addis Ababa. This new service would be a historic achievement for Wollo University that could provide a benefit to Dessie Comprehensive Specialized Hospital (DCSH), who serves over 10 million populations.
Dr Awol Seid, Academic Vice President of Wollo University, has confirmed that the commitment of the university to realizing the re-establishment of existing programs along with consideration of sustainable improvements that will enhance the quality of teaching-learning. The College of Medicine and Health Science’s new pathology lab is an example of how far-sighted leaders have gone beyond rebuilding toward strengthening of Wollo University’s academic excellence overall.
