Why should you do this course?

About 70% of the decisions on the medical diagnosis are based on the results generated by clinical biochemistry laboratory. It is absolutely necessary to generate adequate manpower to look after these clinical laboratories in India. Clinical biochemistry is a scientific discipline related to analysis of body fluids, blood, cells and tissues in order to understand disease process. The scope of clinical biochemistry is interrelated with patient care and treatment. The person working in a clinical biochemistry laboratory needs knowledge on biochemistry, molecular biology, hematology, immunology, microbiology and serology.

Although clinical biochemistry is such an important topic, it is sad to state that there are no professional courses conducted by any universities in India on this subject, at the moment. Therefore, the Association of Clinical Biochemists of India (ACBI) has set up the Indian Board of Clinical Biochemistry (IBCB) in order to conduct the course on “Membership of Indian Board of Clinical Biochemistry” (MIBCB), and to conduct the examination and certify the eligible candidates. We are proud to state that this course is approved by the Quality Council of India (QCI)
The aim of the course is to impart training to graduates, to render them proficient to:

a) perform the medical biochemical techniques
b) interpret the results of various tests
c) supervise the medical biochemistry laboratories
d) Identify biochemical diagnostic agents or tests useful in diagnosis and monitoring response to therapy
e) Interpret the clinical significance of biochemical lab test results

The duration of the course shall be 3 years. The total course is divided into 6 modules (or semesters), each of 6 months duration. Each module is comprised of 5 topics; thus the whole course will have 30 topics. At the end of each module (semester), there will be an examination on the 5 topics of that module. The course will be mainly through correspondence. Further, there will be direct contact classes.
