Master in Laboratory Medicine

Clinical Chemistry I



Learning outcomes

Clinical Chemistry is a multidisciplinary area where biochemical parameters are measured and used to support the diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, and prevention of disease.
Clinical Chemistry I aims to teach:

  • metabolic pathways involved in the homeostasis of the most important macromolecules in Clinical Chemistry
  • the etiology and pathogenesis of the disease
  • the various methodologies being used to assess both qualitatively and / or quantitatively parameters used more in the routine laboratory

So that the student must:

  • Understand the mechanisms underlying a particular disease
  • Know the biochemical parameters associated with it to allow the diagnosis, monitoring and / or prevention
  • Develop reasoning techniques that allow him to frame the different parameters evaluated in order complement their technical skills with interpretative strand
  • Acquire skills in the implementation of the various methodologies
