“Rapid advances in molecular sciences have revolutionized approaches to diagnosis, treatment and management of many human diseases. With a vision to providing a structured postgraduate course on molecular and diagnostic pathology, we launched this programme in 2010 with the purpose of providing health care professionals with a deeper understanding of the molecular and genetic basis of diseases and the application of molecular technologies in disease management.

Emphasis is given to understanding molecular and diagnostic pathology with view to clinical translational application to equip participants meet the increasing expectations in health care from patients and the public.

Suitable for specialists, resident specialists, community physicians and medical laboratory staff responsible for developing, managing and providing molecular diagnostic services, the Course will be delivered through didactic seminars, tutorials and case studies/practicals, self-assessment exercises and completion of a project report. On-line teaching and discussion as part of the learning experience will facilitate overseas student participation.”
