In the Name of Allah
On behalf of all the members of Clinical Biochemistry Department / College of Health Sciences/ Hawler Medical University, we are delighted to welcome you in which was established in 2012-2013. This Department was first ever in Iraq to offer BSc in Clinical Biochemistry.
The academic staff contribute extensively to undergraduate theoretical and practical scientist education, including lectures and tutorials in clinical biochemistry and metabolic functions which are the integration of knowledge provided by studying basic and clinical biochemistry skill. The department introduces blood tests and clinical urine tests with extensive diagnostic capabilities, whose performance is monitored closely and is quality controlled. In our department we will bring together researchers and clinicians to help bridge the gap between researches
Clinical biochemistry is the area of chemistry that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Studying BSc Clinical Biochemistry with us will introduce you to new ideas and products that are applied to some of the biggest health problems of today. Student will study the subject with a focus on human biology and medicine.
The vision of the department of Clinical Biochemistry is to be committed to excellence in biochemistry education as well as scientific research and community services through the Department's academic and research expertise through collaboration with other relevant national and international departments and institutions.
To advance the science and practice of clinical chemistry and laboratory through quality leadership and innovation excellence in professional training, standard of patient care, research, improved communication and understanding of disease through training courses, workshops, To prepare competent graduates with outstanding capabilities which help them understand the biochemical basics of biological processes inside the human body, both in sickness and disease, and to pursue scientific research in all medical domains.
During the study, students should be able to demonstrate competence in preparing and interpreting a variety of clinical specimens, including appropriate documentation which may include working with laboratory information systems. Students should also exhibit appropriate behaviors with respect to interpersonal relationships, dependability, integrity and professionalism.
Students will have met the objectives of the Clinical courses by demonstrating competence in:
