Program Description

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Kentucky Medical Center offers a two-year Clinical Chemistry Fellowship program. This program is seeking accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Clinical Chemistry (COMACC). Our program provides comprehensive training and experience in analytical, clinical and managerial aspects of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine. We expose our trainees to the tenets of clinical laboratory medicine in a variety of teaching styles including traditional didactics, clinical laboratory rotations, and clinical consultations/interpretations. Fellows also participate in diverse and cutting-edge clinical/translational research projects. Our fellows will participate with pathology residents on patient care teams focused on evidence based best practices in diagnostic medicine. These teams provide state of the art personalized clinical care to our patients. Fellows that successfully complete our program are prepared to sit for the ABCC Board exam as well as for careers as directors, educators, and/or scientists in clinical chemistry.
