The department of Functional and Laboratory Diagnostics had been created in 30th of June 2017 at Ternopil University Hospital.

The head of department is MD, PhD. Marushchak M.I.

The purpose of creation of Functional and Laboratory Diagnostic Department is to introduce new methods of laboratory and functional diagnostics; use of knowledge about the etiology and pathogenic mechanisms in a particular case for clinical diagnostic, research and to choose appropriate medical treatment.

Major areas of scientific interest – modern diagnostic methods in cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, allergology, neurophysiology.

THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS

Highly qualified teachers provide a high level of teaching education for students of:

· - Faculty of Medicine

· - Faculty of Pharmacy

· - Foreign Students’ Faculty

At the Department students study:

- Modern diagnostic capabilities of laboratory and functional investigation;

- Features of the preanalytical phase of laboratory investigation;

- Main principles of methods of functional diagnostics and laboratory investigation;

- Rules for the preparation of patients for the laboratory tests and functional methods;

- Performe basic biochemical tests;

- Interpret the results of ECG, spirometry and other functional tests;

- Interpret the results obtained by biochemical tests;

- Select the appropriate range of additional laboratory and functional tests and make diagnostic algorithms.

Training is provided in two languages:
