Course syllabus
The 1st year of internship activity includes:
∙ 150 hours of small group activities (maximum 6 students), carried out in the teaching laboratories, with the aim to know the bases of Laboratory, to be aware of the Lab skills use, and to familiarize with the basic Lab tools , such as scales and other measuring instruments.
∙ 25 hours of theoretical-practical activity divided into two parts: one part aimed at the theoretical knowledge of compiling biomedical laboratory notebooks, and writing a technical report; the second part carried out in computer labs in order to familiarize with the collection and analysis of data through practical exercises on the excel platform
∙ 12.5 hours of activity in Computer Labs in order to familiarize with database for searching specific publications on the website
∙ 12.5 hours in the Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory aiming to give theoretical knowledge on the principles underlying the enzymatic dosage (set up) by using fluorimetric method as well as to improve some laboratory practical approaches
Prerequisites for admission
Requirements and preliminary knowledge in science and chemistry, as per curriculum deriving from secondary school diploma.
Teaching methods
Professionalising practical activity
Teaching Resources
The material will be provided to the student during the practical activities.
Assessment methods and Criteria
