Introduction

 

Clinical Chemistry or Chemical Pathology is a sub-specialty of pathology that comprises the study of metabolic processes in relation to their physiological and pathological changes is man and animals. For this study, the Clinical Chemist applies the techniques of analytical chemistry and biochemistry to obtain diagnostic and prognostic information about patients and to investigate the evolution of disease and response to therapy. It is a discipline which is inseparable from modern medicine. It is fundamental in clinical and pathophysiological research.

 

Many medical laboratories in Eastern and Southern Africa regions, including Kenya, are understaffed in the field of Clinical Chemistry.

 

The course aims to train medical and science graduates in the principles and practice of Clinical Chemistry.       This will therefore develop individuals who are highly competent in the tools for diagnosing diseases and thereby assist clinicians in effective diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients.
