Program Description:

The recently expanded, ComACC-accredited Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Louisville Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine prepares exceptional individuals with advanced degrees (Ph.D. or M.D.) for careers in Laboratory Medicine. Our Fellowship Program emphasizes the application of advanced analytical techniques involving proteomics and genomics in order to provide a better fundamental understanding of laboratory medicine as a clinical and research discipline. The Fellowship Program requires a minimum of two years for completion; however, further training in a third year – particularly in advanced research – is encouraged. Fellows are trained not only as specialists in disciplines such as Clinical Chemistry/Toxicology, Clinical Pharmacogenomics, Diagnostic Proteomics and other new and evolving specialties, but also as basic and clinical laboratory scientists. The Program focuses on providing sufficient practical and theoretical experience for a career in academic medicine, clinical practice, or industry. In addition, preparation for certification by national boards, such as the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (ABCC), Molecular Diagnostics, etc., is a major aspect of the Program. Emphasis is placed on the foundation needed for future career development stressing both basic and translational clinical research.
