|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
The clinical biochemistry part of the course deals with the systematic analysis of the laboratory tests for the main organs and functions. The course comprises 10 hours of plenary lessons and 15 hours of discussions of simple case studies with small groups of students. This part of the course will allow the students to put into practice the information received during the plenary lectures.
The course comprises plenary lectures and discussions of simple case-studies with small groups of students. The plenary lectures will systematically address the study of laboratory medicine of the main organs and bodily functions. The case-studies will allow the students to put into practice the basic knowledge acquired and test their understanding of laboratory tests and the capacity to use the evidence provided by laboratory medicine in a diagnostic process.
The aim of the clinical biochemistry part of the course is to allow the student to acquire basic knowledge on the clinical-diagnostic significance of the laboratory tests of the “clinical chemistry profile” and of the laboratory test that explore the function of specific organs/apparatuses. This knowledge will be applied to the discussion of simple case-studies, allowing the students to put into practice the basic knowledge acquired and test their understanding of laboratory tests. Students will realize the extent and severity of deviation from the normal range of the laboratory test discussed in the course during pathological conditions. Students will be able to identify the most appropriate laboratory tests to address specific diagnostic hypotheses and evaluate the results in terms of confirming or disproving these hypotheses.

The module of clinical biochemistry is part of the multistep integrated teaching examination with written and oral verification.
In particular, a multiple-choice test, delivered either on site or on-line depending on anti-covid guidelines, will assess the achievement of the training objectives of the clinical biochemistry module.
A multiple choice test will investigate knowledge of the parameters of the "clinical chemistry profile", regarding both the normal range and the dynamic excursion during the organ and tissue diseases described during the module. The test will also explore the ability of the student to derive diagnostic hypotheses from the results of the laboratory tests, putting into practice the clinical case studies discussed during the module.
