[88 Hours]
This course includes lectures, demonstration, small group instruction and laboratory exercises. The course is designed to introduce students to appropriate use of clinical laboratories for screening, diagnosis, and prognosis, as well as to increase the student’s understanding of disease. Proper use of diagnostic procedures is based, in part, on knowledge of the patho-physiology of disease and, in part, on knowledge of the limitations imposed by methodology and instrumentation. The laboratory sessions are intended to permit the student to become proficient in the performance of a few selected procedures most likely to be of value to the student in subsequent practice and to assist the student in understanding technical limitations of laboratory tests.
