2nd Ed. Biology and molecular pathology for medical

Welcome to the second edition of the online theoretical and practical course in molecular biology and pathology for physicians!

(Attention: we are developing the IIId Online edition of the Molecular Biology and Pathology for Medicine Course. Registration coming soon)

The great development of molecular technology and its application to the study of human pathology requires that health professionals, especially those relating to neoplastic disease, have some basic knowledge about this type of technology that allows them to interpret their results and raise their own diagnostic and research lines.

All content offered on the "VIIIº classroom course Biology and Molecular Pathology for doctors" are in this first online edition organized into 16 topics, corresponding to the each conference of the speakers and trying to fill the gap in training of Pathology medical residents and other specialties in contact with molecular biology. Within each unit, a part of the conference, there is a handout (pdf) extending information and a self-assessment test with two type questions (unlimited attempts). In some cases, they are also links for finding out more about the matter.

The course is recognized by the Spanish Society of Pathology and has the stamp of Aula Clínic. To know more about the speakers, the topics and methodology can download a PDF document information via email (grey box).

"Desde conceptos básicos hasta las nuevas técnicas de biología molecular y su aplicación en los diversos campos. Un curso muy completo, el campus muy fácil de utilizar, las clases son claras y los resúmenes son útiles así como la auto evaluación."

Eva Fernández, Técnica en Área Operativa CORE Biología Molecular en Centro de Diagnóstico Biomédico, H Clínic de Barcelona

Alguna clase/ponencia se podría dividir en dos por la densidad de la materia, pero por todo lo demás, me parece un curso muy completo, atractivo, bien estructurado y de gran calidad educativa. Sin duda, ¡totalmente recomendable!

"Excelente y didáctico Curso. Muy conforme y contenta con la profesionalidad de los autores. Espero poder participar en otro curso."
