Other Information:

The Goals and Objectives of the department of chemical pathology include:

A Providing relevant information and data on the biochemical basis of disease.

B Assisting the clinician in confirmation of or exclusion of a presumptive clinical diagnosis and monitor patients response to treatment.

C Understanding teaching and training of both medical and paramedical staff at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. Students from the school of Medicine, Dentistry, Medical Laboratory Technology and Health Technology as well as undergraduates from other Universities on Industrial training are accommodated at various times /periods. Post-graduate students are mainly Resident Doctors who are training to be Pathologists.

D Raising funds for the hospital from fees paid by patients for assay of their samples sent by clinicians.
