Introduction


Chemical Pathology (also known as Clinical Biochemistry/Clinical Chemistry) is the study of the biochemical basic of disease and the application of biochemical and molecular techniques in diagnosis. The data generated by the laboratory plus the interpretation of this data assist the clinician in diagnosis and definition of disease with biochemical etiology and secondary biochemical manifestation providing a rationale for subsequent management.

The University of Health Sciences offers two programs in department of Chemical Pathology.

  • M.Phil Chemical Pathology (Basic Sciences)
  • M.Phil Medical Laboratory Sciences (Chemical Pathology)

We aim to train our students in clinical services, educational and research roles.

OBJECTIVES:

The post graduate programme at University of Health Sciences aspires to train its students in area of

  • Laboratory principles.
  • Laboratory operations.
  • Analytical techniques and instrumentation.
  • Analysis and Pathophysiology of classical analytes.
  • Molecular diagnosis.
WORKING FACILITIES:

The department is equipped with a well-established laboratory containing automated and semi-automated analysers, hormone analyser and PCR equipment.

FUTURE PLANS

To start Ph.D programme in the department.
