  Sackler School of Medicine - Department of Clinical Biochemistry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The research activities of the Department of Clinical Biochemistry are dedicated to shedding light on the biochemical mechanisms of hereditary and acquired disease.
The course covers diseases caused by primary disturbances of biochemical equilibria, such as hereditary enzyme deficiencies, hormonal abnormalities and plasma cells dyscrasias, as well as secondary biochemical disturbances manifested in liver or kidney diseases, pathological conditions of the heart and gastrointestinal tract, and postoperative disturbances of electrolyte balance.
Biochemistry is taught by invited lecturers of all departments as a general introductory course.

 ACBI -- some definitions
"Clinical biochemistry" is for most purposes synonymous with "clinical chemistry" and "chemical pathology".
Such designations as clinical biochemistry and chemical pathology cover the same field and, in practice, there are substantial overlaps between clinical chemistry and other clinical laboratory sciences, especially haematology, immunology, physiology and pharmacology (Dybkær 1984, p.11).
Clinical chemistry is thus a discipline which is inseparable from modern medicine, and is implicated in fundamental clinical and pathophysiological research (IFCC Handbook 1991-1993:6).

 RETURNING TO CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY
This has been considered at some length by the Education Committee of the Association of Clinical Biochemists whose conclusion was that, because the profession is small it is not practical to set up such a programme.
If one was to be established it would require a few individual Trusts to accept responsibility for establishing posts to accommodate this, as there is no precedent there was clearly no support.
Those that have been out of the profession for longer periods, would find it difficult to maintain their CPD, and many have lost their registration as a consequence of the time period, would have to re-enter through Grade B (8-16) posts where there would be a training (in the individuals case re-training) element.
