Clinical Chemistry is the discipline of pathology (or laboratory medicine) that is concerned with the detection and measurement of biochemical changes in disease. Clinical Chemistry laboratories carry out a wide range of biochemical investigations in ever increasing numbers in a complex automated and computerised working environment. In addition to routine diagnostic work, personnel are also frequently involved in clinical trials work, audit and research and so require a detailed knowledge of the effects of disease on biochemical measurements.
Programme Aims All students regardless of background will gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles of Clinical Chemistry to an advanced level, including clinical and research aspects and with special attention to current developments in the discipline.
It is also intended that the MSc, which requires 6 academic terms in a 2 year cycle, will assist eligible candidates in their subsequent preparation for Membership of the Royal College of Pathologists in Clinical Biochemistry.
This new M.Sc. programme in Clinical Chemistry is offered on a part-time basis over 2 years. Candidates who are employed as medical scientists, clinical biochemists or medical doctors and who wish to develop a special interest in Clinical Chemistry are particularly invited to apply. The course will be administered through the Faculty of Health Sciences and will be co-ordinated by Drs Gerard Boran and Vivion Crowley.
A comprehensive lecture programme will be delivered on Fridays over five terms. This will consist of 6 Modules
* Clinical Chemistry I and II,
* Endocrinology and Metabolism I and II,
* Quality Assurance and Laboratory Management,
* and a Revision Module in the final term.
Each module will include Techniques Workshops: these will focus on developing practical skills through demonstrations and assignments in the candidates´ base laboratory. A series of Clinical Laboratory Interface Workshops will foster clinical reasoning and data presentation skills.
A research dissertation conducted in the candidates´ base laboratory will also form part of the course. Instruction on research methods will be included.
The course is assessed by means of a Final Examination which consists of two written papers, a practical assessment consisting of a series of short cases, and a viva voce. The writing of a dissertation based on a research project is also a requirement for the M.Sc.
Applications will be accepted from those who satisfy ONE of the following requirements: * hold an honours degree (normally first or upper second class) in any health sciences or biomedical discipline, or a medical, dental or nursing degree, OR
* are Members or are eligible for Membership of the Academy of Medical Laboratory Sciences, or possess Part 1 or Part 2 Fellowship of the Institute of Biomedical Science OR
* have appropriate current or previous work experience in clinical biochemist or medical scientist posts
Applicants under (b) should provide documentary evidence such as a letter from the Academy of Medical Laboratory Sciences confirming their Membership or eligibility for Membership.
Applicants under (c) should provide full details of their current and previous experience with their application.
Applicants meeting these requirements may be required to attend for interview.
Candidates are also recommended to have at least one year of experience in a general clinical chemistry laboratory.
