The Laboratory Medicine curriculum is based on knowledge acquired during studies of Pathophysiology 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).
Beyond the basic knowledge integrated into the internal medicine training, real diagnostic problems through life examples are discussed during the practices.
