Background
The Department of Laboratory Medicine was founded in 2010 with missions on the following areas:

  • Education. The main goal is the introduction of basic principles of Laboratory Medicine to graduate medical students. The Department also provides post-graduate education for health-care specialists including physicians and clinical biochemists.
  • Diagnostics. It coordinates laboratory tests at the majority of University and provides professional support for clinical decision making.
  • Research. The Department actively participates in research studies involving laboratory tests; it also manages research projects of its own. The Department manages its own PhD program.

Education

The Laboratory Medicine curriculum is based on knowledge acquired during studies of Pathophysiology and Clinical Laboratory Diagnostic obtained during the third year. The major goal is to present some approach and diagnostic algorithms that are required for efficient test ordering and evaluation of lab test results. As part of education the students obtain information regarding:

  •          the procedure that generates laboratory test results (from test ordering to laboratory reports)
  •          laboratory tests needed to establish a diagnosis
  •          the major aspects that the medical doctors should take into account when they evaluate a laboratory report
  •          novel techniques used in general laboratory (with their drawbacks and benefits).
