The Laboratory Medicine course aims to prepare the students of the master's degree in the knowledge required to face any subsequent studies for the achievement of the corresponding Specialization Diploma.
AIMS AND CONTENT
The main purpose of the theoretical part of the teaching is to provide students with in-depth knowledge about the meaning of laboratory tests used in modern medical practice ("screening" for congenital diseases, diagnostics on targeted clinical suspicion, exclusion of pathology, control of therapy effectiveness, prognosis). The aim of the integrated teaching is to provide students with the following skills: to know the clinical significance of the deviation from the respective reference values of the laboratory tests treated during the course, to know how to select the most suitable parameters for the study of pathologies of a specific organ or apparatus, to identify possible interfering factors on the result of specific laboratory tests, to know how to collect, organize and integrate the results of laboratory tests for the definition and interpretation of clinical problems, to correctly apply the methods of measurement of laboratory parameters, critically interpreting them also from a pathophysiological point of view, in order to frame them in the overall clinical picture, diagnosis and prognosis.
In-depth knowledge of biochemistry, physiology, general pathology, pathophysiology, immunology. Basic knowledge of anatomy and histology.

The teaching of Clinical Biochemistry will be assessed with a multiple choice written test. The teaching of Clinical Pathology will be evaluated through an interview with at least two teachers.
The multiple choice written tests in clinical biochemistry will focus on all the topics covered in class. In most tests, only one answer will be considered correct; in a minority of tests, the candidate will have to demonstrate that he/she chooses the best among the answers proposed; in the case of answers with partial but incomplete content, a fraction of a point will be attributed, instead of the whole point.
In the clinical pathology interview, the candidate will be asked to comment on two / three groups of laboratory tests, with the respective clinical indications and possible interpretations; the candidate may also be required to draw up a protocol of laboratory investigations to be carried out in the event of pathologies proposed by the examiner.
Basic knowledge of both biochemistry and clinical pathology will be necessary, but not automatically sufficient, for the exam to be approved by the examiners.
