Program Overview

Visit the Clinical Biochemistry Program website

The post-doctoral training program in Clinical Biochemistry is accredited by the Canadian Academy of Clinical Biochemistry.

This program involves the University and the academic hospitals of the Hamilton Regional Laboratory Medicine Program; St. Josephs’ Healthcare Hamilton (St. Joseph’s Hospital, Centre for Ambulatory Health Services), Hamilton Health Sciences (McMaster University Medical Centre, Hamilton General Hospital, Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre). Each site maintains an active laboratory with both routine and specialised services. Students will rotate through laboratories at all sites.

The training program is two years duration and follows the syllabus of the Canadian Academy of Clinical Biochemistry. This program aims to provide the fellows with the opportunity to become knowledgeable and competent clinical biochemists, with the skills required to be both an effective consultant for clinical colleagues and a capable Clinical Biochemistry laboratory professional. This requires, and the program provides, the environment necessary for the individual fellow to develop skills in self-evaluation, self-directed learning and critical appraisal enabling the clinical biochemist to proficiently pursue life-long learning.

Individuals who successfully complete the program will be eligible to sit the CACB certification examinations.
