Topic

Short description of the subject:
During the class we present and demonstrate the operation and inner workings of a modern clinical laboratory. The students will experience first-hand how the samples are received, identified, processed and how the results are validated and provided for the clinicians. They will also interactively work together with each other and the teachers to solve complex clinical cases, differential-diagnostic problems, for which the solutions rely heavily on the laboratory results. The course will help the students to understand the value of the laboratory, to be able to identify and avoid potential caveats and misleading data and to use the laboratory services efficiently in their professional career.
