Clinical Chemistry Fellowship

Director: Nikolina Babic, Ph.D., DABCC

Yusheng Zhu, PhD, DABCC - Director of Clinical Chemistry Fellowship

Description

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), located in Charleston, is a 700-bed hospital, with a nationally recognized children's hospital. The medical center also includes the NCI-designated Hollings Cancer Center, a Level I trauma center, Institute of Psychiatry, South Carolina’s only transplant center and over 100 outreach locations. The Clinical Chemistry Fellowship Program in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at MUSC is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Clinical Chemistry. The program is divided into two phases: clinical and practical/research phase. During the clinical phase (12 months), the fellows will rotate through various Clinical Pathology laboratories, including general clinical chemistry and special chemistry laboratories, laboratory management, molecular pathology, immunology, and hematology laboratories. During this time the trainees will also be provided various didactic sessions in order to develop their medical knowledge and may be assigned a shorter, case-based or quality improvement project. The rotations are between 1 and 4 weeks, depending on the specific lab area. During practical/research phase, the fellow serves as an acting clinical laboratory director and works closely with the attending to resolve any clinical problems and provide appropriate clinical consults. In addition, the fellow is expected to complete a clinical or translational research project.
