Course objectives
The goal of this course is to provide general basic knowledge about biochemical and molecular aspects of pathobiological processes and use of biochemical tests to obtain diagnostic information. The course consisted from two part, pathobiochemistry and methods in clinical biochemistry. First part is designed to introduce the students to the theory and principles of (pato)biochemistry and (pato)physiology in health and diseases. Second part is focused to the theoretical background of clinical chemistry tests.
