Diploma of Specialized Studies - Clinical Biology

Hybrid

Mission

The mission of the residency in clinical biology is the training of physicians who are specialized in the field of laboratory medicine and who can contribute to the healthcare system of the country by acting as support to other clinical specialties. Moreover, the aim of the program is to graduate specialized doctors with the appropriate skills and knowledge and with ethics in line with the mission of the Lebanese Maronite Order (O.L.M.).

Program Educational Objectives

1. Graduates will be able to manage a laboratory in both the private and/or hospital setting.
2....
Graduates may also ultimately work in the polyvalent, specialized or research tracks.
3. Graduates will be able to use both the fundamental and specialized knowledge for the processing of and the validation of the interpretation of various laboratory tests.
4. Graduates will be able to function in multidisciplinary teams in respect to ethical codes of the profession.

Program Outcomes

a. The Students of the residency in clinical pathology will have both the fundamental and specialized knowledge for the processing and the clinical interpretation of various laboratory tests.
b. Aid the patient’s primary treating team in reaching a diagnosis in the most appropriate and efficient ways.
c. Acquire communication skills to ensure proper collaboration with other health care professionals in a multi­disciplinary setting.
d. Be trained to take responsibility, recognize limitations and be ethical in their dealings with colleagues and patients.
e. The students will master the management and the organizational operations of the laboratory.
f. There will also be an emphasis on quality assurance and the judicious use of available resources and finances.
g. They will learn to stay up to date by critically reading literature and studies relevant to the specialty and will be encouraged and taught to contribute to the medical literature by conducting research and writing medical papers.

Common Core
MEDR939Clinical Hematology
3 credits
The clinical hematology course will teach the students the theory of hematology, lab techniques in hematology and the proper extension of hematology lab investigations to the clinical setting.
MEDR938Medical Biochemistry
3 credits
This course will explore the theoretical principles, interferences and clinical interpretation of the different tests that are performed in clinical chemistry. Furthermore, residents will learn the mechanisms, proper methods of operation, maintenance and quality control of the lab equipment used to measure various chemical parameters.
MEDR937Medical Microbiology
3 credits
The medical microbiology course aims to: understand the collection, transport and processing of different microbiological samples; explore the general laboratory techniques and methods used in the diagnosis of infections and in the identification of specific disease­causing micro­organisms; survey the main pathogens in bacteriology, virology, parasitology and mycology - their epidemiology, the clinical infections that they cause as well as treatment and prophylaxis.
MEDR946Polyvalent Clinical Pathology
3 credits
This course will explore quality control, management and administrative issues related to laboratory functioning. The students will also deepen previously acquired knowledge in clinical microbiology, clinical chemistry and clinical hematology.

MEDR930ASeminars and Conferences
Seminars and conferences represent both a learning and assessment tool knowing that the theoretical education of the resident remains mostly a personal work that begins with reading books and articles, preparing conferences and is ongoing with continuing medical education and self­learning (erudition). During development, the “apprentice doctors” must initially attend and listen to their elders, then submit records to the staff, then present lectures to peers and seniors locally (hospital) and in a local congress and finally in an international congress. In parallel and concerning teaching, it begins with clinical teaching to the youngest and finishes during university courses.
