Admission advisor


You will be able to manage high-level laboratories in specialty hospitals, both from the perspective of care provision (diagnosis and treatment), technology, and administration.

You will prepare and train in a general panorama of “Laboratory Medicine” or “Clinical Pathology” as a medical specialty from a historical, philosophical, practical, evolutive, and current perspective so that you can consider the clinical laboratory as your area of work.

You will be able to select the most appropriate laboratory procedures to examine patients, based on their indications and counterindications and taking advantage of your basic training in general medicine, outline the procedures of Clinical Laboratories and Blood Banks through theoretical-practical preparation, interpret the laboratory results, and establish the most appropriate correlation with clinical and morphological data.

Duration: 3 years.
