Year of Clinical Practice

Laboratory medicine during the year of clinical practice

At many universities and colleges you have the opportunity to complete one trimester of your practical year in the field of laboratory medicine and can thus gain a good insight into the broad and interesting range of activities of laboratory physicians. You will be taught knowledge related to finding indications, execution, interpretation and quality assurance of laboratory medical examinations. You will recognize that the activity of the laboratory physician goes far beyond the preparation of basic clinical chemical findings – implementing the latest scientific findings and undergoing continuous development is the reality.

The exemplary Laboratory Medicine logbook giving an initial overview of possible laboratory medicine activities during your practical year can be downloaded here.
