Presentation

The Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Laboratory Techniques trains highly qualified professionals who acquire specific skills and are ready to be employed and enter the job market immediately after graduating. The main sector is technical medical and diagnostics, and graduates will be qualified professionals able to carry out autonomously the technical procedures necessary to conduct diagnoses on biological materials and findings.

Course content

During this three-year course, students will be trained to practice their future profession through an intense programme of lectures and practical laboratory work, carried out under the supervision and guidance of professional tutors, in conformity with European standards. Class attendance and participation in clinical placements are mandatory. The programme provides a solid preparation in both standard scientific and specialised disciplines, so that the graduates gain a thorough understanding of pathological processes and have the skills to provide effective diagnostic support. Students are also required to learn the English language, which is necessary for them to keep up-to-date and participate to the Erasmus project. Practical activities are performed in various laboratories of the University of Modena, the Modena General Hospital and the New Civic Hospital of Sant'Agostino-Estense in Baggiovara, as well as the Arcispedale Santa Maria Nuova in Reggio Emilia and the Zoo- prophylactic institute.

Career options

Graduates are health professionals in the technical-diagnostic field who can perform laboratory analyses and research activities as employees or self-employed practitioners, in the following areas: clinical-chemistry analyses; drug toxicology; endrocrinology; immunohematology and transfusion hematology; clinical pathology; microbiology; virology; pathological anatomy (including the dissection room); legal, genetic, veterinary and other types of medicine.
