Learning objectives
The general objective of the Integrated Course is to provide students with the basis for a rational use of Laboratory Diagnostics to optimize the diagnostic-therapeutic pathway. This is achieved by managing laboratory investigations with respect to biological and pathophysiological processes concerning organ and systemic apparatuses, and metabolic systems. Aspects related to a correct clinical methodological approach are highlighted, including the appropriateness of the request for diagnostic investigations, the evaluation of their clinical efficacy and the impact on the patient outcome.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will acquire fundamental knowledges about Laboratory Medicine for requesting, in an appropriate way, laboratory investigations and for critically interpreting test results for diagnostic, prognostic, and follow-up purposes.
