INTRODUCTION

The Department of Chemical Pathology is one of the foundational departments in the Faculty of Basic Clinical Sciences in the University. Its responsibilities are mainly teaching/training research and laboratory work. The Department trains medical/dental students and postgraduate doctors to acquire appropriate/adequate knowledge and develop basic skills in laboratory medicine.  

Chemical Pathology (also known as Clinical Biochemistry/Clinical Chemistry) is the study of the biochemical basis of diseases, and the application of biochemical and molecular techniques in diagnosis. An allied subspecialty of Chemical Pathology is Metabolic Medicine which deals with metabolic disease in all its manifestations. It involves teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and provides diagnostic laboratory services for the Teaching Hospital.
Our undergraduate program is part of the MBBS curriculum in the training of medical/dental doctors. The department trains 300 Level medical/dental students in Clinical Pathology and Laboratory medicine for a one (1) year period. Students who are successful at the ensuing part II exams will proceed to the Clinical specialties

The department greatest assets are the skills and expertise of the Academic Staff and strong Clinical focus of our programs. Our programs offer students opportunities for study with Academic Staff who are nationally recognized in their expertise, especially during case review session and practical demonstration session. Every member of staff holds a certificate of the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) and/or from the West Africa College of Physician (WACP).The Academic Staff are actively involved in Clinical Sciences and research.



OBJECTIVES

The courses taught should enable the student to understand the following:

1)   How the common clinical disorders may be related to and subdivided into their main biochemical components.

2)   The relation of biochemistry to common diseases.

3)   The description, recognition and the biochemistry of diseases associated with abnormalities in metabolism.

4)   The principles of investigations and interpretation of results of biochemical tests and laboratory investigations.

5)   The principles of quality assurance in ensuring a reliable analytical result.

6)   Identification and investigation of metabolic diseases

Performance of simple routine tests and ability to use common side laboratory
