Teaching is performed by a team of experienced teachers.

Subject Clinical biochemistry

compulsory, 5th year of general medicine

6 days (30 hrs) of seminars, ended with credit and compulsory exam that is realised in the form of complex electronic quiz. Teachnig is in available english language too.

Main goals (outcomes) of education

Correctly indicate and interprete laboratory results.
A journey to this goal leads from basic analytical and diagnostic properties of laboratory method, understanding of reference range concept and interdisciplinary interpretation of pathophysiologic correlates in clinical biochemistry laboratory results. Building on knowledge of metabolic pahtways in healthy human organism, absolvent should understand usage of biomarkers change for diagnosis and prognosis of prevalent and severe diseases, understand basic toxicology and laboratory monitoring of different organ functions and therapeutic drug monitoring.

Clinical biochemistry new biomarkers and its usage, case files

optional, 5th and 6th year, general medicine; in Czech language only

10 x 2 hours (seminars), 5 credits

Program and content are summarized in student information system.
