Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

summarise disease processes from a biochemical viewpoint

employ problem solving and application of biochemical concepts to clinical scenarios

debate developments in gene therapy for the treatment of a range of genetic, non-genetic diseases and cancer

evaluate biochemical and/or genetic clinical data and justify conclusions

solve clinical cases by using biochemical methods

select and employ relevant laboratory methods and safe practice in the biochemical laboratory
