Greetings from MIMLS

Malaysian Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences (MIMLS) is an organisation for the medical laboratory science practitioners. MIMLS was formed from the merging of 3 associations from UM, IMR and UKM in 1992.

In preparation to the Allied Health Profession Act being passed in Parliament and becoming a law. MIMLS was tasked to publicise the AHP Act and the on-line registration using Allied Health Professionals Information System (AHPiS) to the medical laboratory staff.

The Act will be under the purview of Ministry of Health (MOH), which will regulate 23 types of Allied Health Professionals (AHP). The 23 professions are categorised under clinical, public health and laboratory professions.  The Act will require these AHPs to be registered for occupational licensing. This Act is to safeguard the general public from professional incompetence in the allied health professions.

MIMLS in collaboration with the Allied Health Science Division / Bahagian Sains Kesihatan Bersekutu(BSKB) of Ministry of Health is organising  AHP and AHPiS awareness roadshows. 
There will be a briefing on Allied Health Professions Bill organised by the MIMLS in collaboration with BSKB of MOH.

 The event will take place as below;

DATE     :               19 March 2015 (Thursday)

TIME      :               11.30am -2.00pm

VENUE  :               Clinical Auditorium, Aras 2
                               Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya
To attend, please complete the Application Form and return to before 13th March 2015.

The briefing on the Allied Health Professional BIll (Rang Undang-Undang Profesional Kesihatan Bersekutu) held on 14th February 2015 (Saturday) was concluded successfully. Considering the Chinese New Year is just around the corner, 64 participants from various categories of lab professionals indicated their keen interest and projected the importance of the subject.

The participants are expected to disseminate this very important info to their colleagues so they are aware of this upcoming act and it's impact to their profession. The awareness of the pre-registration process before the AHP Bill is gazetted as an act to regulate 23 Allied Health Professionals is also of utmost importance.

To assist, we have upload the step by step instruction on the pre-registration of AHP Professionals using the AHPiS.
The system works on Mozilla Firefox but not so well with Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.

You can also download the instructions on AHPiS and the Allied Health Professionals Bill. Please scroll below to download.
