Curriculum Details

19 TOTAL CREDITS REQUIRED

The online Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Chemistry for Medical Laboratory Science requires completion of 19 credit hours. Completion of the certificate qualifies the graduate to take the Technologist in Chemistry examination offered by national certifying agencies.

Core

Principles of the immune system’s components, functions, interactions with microorganisms, and the clinical applications of immunologic assays to human health and disease.

This course studies the methodologies employed in the chemical analysis of human blood and body fluids. This includes an examination of the fundamentals of measurement and the principles of instrumentation as they relate to the assay of each analyte studied. Also, the laboratory results are correlated with clinical significance and pathophysiology, which may generate changes in the analyte. Throughout the course, the quality assurance measures required to ensure the reliability and validity of the laboratory results will also be emphasized.

This second course in clinical biochemistry continues the study of the measurement and interpretation of chemical constituents in human blood and body fluids The laboratory results of each analyte are correlated with the clinical significance and pathophysiology which may generate changes in the analyte. Throughout the course, the quality assurance measures required to ensure reliability and validity of the laboratory results will also be emphasized.

Introduction to the molecular techniques used to diagnose human disease; technology, theory, and methodology of specific molecular protocols that can be used within a clinical laboratory setting to aid in disease diagnostics including those of genetic, oncogenic, and infections origin.

Introduction to critical concepts of lab management, including leadership theory, management principles, human resource management, financial management, quality management, and laboratory operations.

Application of the medical knowledge and clinical skills gained in the didactic clinical biochemistry I and clinical biochemistry II courses. Proctor fee.
