New Release – a complete instructional tool for teaching Clinical Chemistry to health sciences students and pathology residents or for preparing for board examinations
Laboratory Sciences Educator:
“This book meets the educational needs of medical students, those studying for the MLS/MLT exams, allied [health] students, and is also an excellent review for clinical pathologists.”
Clinical Chemistry focuses on the laboratory diagnosis of the most common diseases by organ system and relates diagnostic testing to the pathophysiology of the diseases in development of the differential diagnosis. Analytical methodology essential to interpreting test results is discussed. Learning objectives and key terms are defined at the beginning of each chapter.
The product of an introductory course in clinical chemistry for medical students at the University of California-San Diego, Clinical Chemistry contains all the core material needed for teaching pathology residents and medical technology students during required rotations in clinical chemistry.
The material in this book should also help students to be well-prepared for their respective licensing examinations and clinical rotations and assist residents preparing for board examinations.
Comments from recent Practical Laboratory Diagnosis of Disease: Clinical Chemistry purchasers:
“This book will help pathology residents quickly review clinical chemistry before taking their boards. Chapter 1 is especially useful for board preparation!”
“The range of topics was very broad - having been a course director I was glad to see these topics not only current but also well-covered! “
A complete package--the book and the companion study tool—provides a core element in conducting an introductory course in clinical chemistry for health sciences students and pathology residents.
