Learning outcomes of the curricular unit:

The Curricular Unit of Clinical-Laboratorial Biochemistry II is based on biochemical knowledge that allow students to interpret and interconnect sub-cellular, cellular and physiological processes as well as the metabolic sequences involved in homeostasis and functions of organs and systems. After attending the CU the student should be able to:

  • Have knowledge about the role of the clinical biochemistry in the diagnostics and in the treatment of disease, as well as the importance of laboratory in diagnosis and monitoring of specific disease conditions.
  • Use the concepts and techniques taught
  • Have the ability to work neatly and in a team
  • Carry out scientific research in this area
  • Know and execute the methodologies for determining various analytes expressed in analytical values
  • Interpret the analyse changes envisaged in pathology
  • Be prepared to do the evaluation and integration of clinical and laboratorial findings
  • Execute the laboratory control of analytical determination
Syllabus:
  1. RELATIONSHIP - PATHOLOGY AND BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES
