ML5302 - Advanced Clinical Biochemistry 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
This subject continues from ML5301 in the study of the clinical aspects of biochemical
analysis. Endocrine function and analysis of disorders, protein and immunoglobulin
determination, therapeutic drug monitoring and tumour markers, iron and lipid disorders.
The issues of enzyme analysis and immunoassays will be discussed and practised. Advanced
analytical methods will be introduced. The subject will use case study tutorial sessions
to facilitate the teaching of the clinical interpretation of results. This subject
completes the professional competency required for a graduate clinical biochemistry,
medical laboratory scientist.
- demonstrate an integrated theoretical and technical knowledge of basic methods of
clinical chemical analysis;
- demonstrate an integrated theoretical and technical knowledge of quality assurance
application and interpretation;
- apply recognized methods and tools of clinical biochemistry in a clinical/medical
- reflect on current skills, knowledge and attitudes, in order to plan and implement
ongoing personal and professional development needs, relevant to clinical biochemistry
and working as a professional medical laboratory scientist;
- exercise judgment to interpret and comment on data collected during practical/clinical
sessions and the interpretation of clinical case studies.
