Degree in Biomedical Laboratory Techniques

The graduates in biomedical laboratory techniques are educated through the course which fully complies with the needs expressed in the law on 10th August 2000, no. 251, art. 3, comma 1, professional healthcare workers of the technical-diagnostic area which carry out, with professional autonomy, the technical procedures needed to execute the diagnostic methods on biological materials or on people. In other words techno-assistance activities in what was foreseen in the regulations concerning the identification of figures and relative professional profiles defined in the decree of the Health ministry. The graduates in biomedical laboratory techniques are given a suitable preparation in the basic disciplines in order to provide them with the best understanding of the most important elements that are the foundation of the pathological processes that are developed during childhood, adulthood and geriatric ages on which the diagnostic intervention in focused on.

The prerequisites needed by students who wish to enroll in the Degree course in Biomedical Laboratory Techniques are:

  • Adequate initial preparation according to what is foreseen by the current regulations to enter courses with a nationally limited number of participants
  • Good predisposition to human contact
  • Good team working skills
  • Ability to analyze and resolve problems
  • Ability to autonomously acquire new knowledge and information by evaluating them critically.

Possession of a study title that meets one of the following criteria:

  • a secondary school diploma that gives access to the University, issued by a state or equivalent educational institution of the Italian education system in Italy or abroad;
  • final qualification of secondary education issued by an institution belonging to a foreign school system, located in Italy or abroad, obtained following a course of at least 12 years of schooling;
  • final qualification of secondary education obtained in a school system that includes 10 or 11 years of schooling, supplemented with one or two years of university, provided that all the exams scheduled for those academic years have been passed.

Candidates enrolled in the last year of secondary school can also participate in the selections at the state and private school institutions of the Italian education system or at a foreign secondary education institution that allows the achievement of a valid qualification for admission to courses of higher education of the Italian system with the condition, if the test results are positive, to present the diploma or qualification just obtained at the time of the subsequent enrolment to the courses, under penalty of exclusion from the list of admitted candidates.

Students already in possession of an academic degree (obtained in Italy or abroad) and those who come from another degree course or university degree are required to observe the same procedures indicated in this call for applications and take part in the admission test.

NEW CALLS for Non EU Candidates

Health Professions Degree Courses for NON-EU students residing abroad:

  • 35 slots for the Degree Course in Biomedical Laboratory Techniques.

Registration for the admission test will be possible from February 1th, 2019 to April 23th, 2019.

Please read the Call for Application and get all necessary information to sit the exam.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE ADMISSION OF NON EU IN THE HEALTH PROFESSIONS

In order to complete the registration for the admission test, each candidate needs to register and follow the instructions.

The candidate is responsible for the information given when filling in the registration form. The presence of false, incorrect or omitted information leads to the immediate exclusion from the test or, if already passed, the cancellation from the lists of those admitted.

The Admission test

The entry test for all Degree Courses is the UCAT test.

Entry to the Master’s Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery and to the other courses of Medical School is regulated by a multiple choice written admission test and a speaking test.

The UCAT is developed and delivered by the UKCAT Consortium. Information regarding test content and how to prepare for the test can be found here (www.ukcat.ac.uk).

In February 2019, the UKCAT Consortium are changing the name of their admission test from UKCAT to UCAT. From 1stFebruary 2019, the website will change to www.ucat.ac.uk. The test content will remain the same.

UCAT is a computer-based test to be taken at certified test centres (see Annex 1) and lasts two hours. The test consists of five separate sections to be passed within a set time and each consists of a series of multiple choice questions.

Additional time is granted to candidates with proven disabilities or particular medical conditions.

Formal didactics

This didactic form includes:

- lectures: dealing with one specific topic that is identified by a title and performed by a teacher with the help of computing and/or multimedia supports based on a predefined calendar and given to students enrolled to a specific course year and divided into small groups;

- seminars: didactic activities with the same characteristics as lectures but carried out contemporarily by many teachers with different competences and, as such, noted in the lesson registers in each one of them.

Non formal didactics

It deals with interactive didactic activities aimed at small groups of students and coordinated by a tutor whose task is that of facilitating the students in the acquisition of knowledge, abilities and behavioral models. Learning mainly occurs through stimuli deriving from problem solving and the use of methodological skills needed to resolve them and taking decisions as well as through the direct and personal use of actions (gesture and relational) in practical exercises and/or attending clinical departments, surgeries, territorial facilities and research laboratories.

A) Teaching courses.

The integrated teaching courses are held by one or more teachers in function to the specific objectives assigned to the course.

The specific objectives of the individual courses that are contained in the exam programs and their programming are proposed annually by the course teachers within the start date of the enrolments for the new academic year.

B) Professional activities.

During the three year degree course, the student is required to acquire the professional specifications in the nursing field by carrying out internships in facilities identified by the degree course council (CCL) and in the defined periods. The internship can also be done in developing countries.

C) Elective activities.

The degree course council organizes the offer of elective didactic activities that are created with lectures, seminars, interactive courses with small groups among which the student is able to exercise their own personal option until achieving an overall number of 6 credits.

Each student autonomously chooses the elective activities among the didactics supplied.

The degree course lasts three years. The graduate in biomedical laboratory techniques is a healthcare worker who carries out laboratory, analysis and research activities in the biomedical and biotechnological field as well as biochemistry, microbiology, parasitology, virology, pharmacology, immunology, clinical pathology, hematology, cytology and histopathology. The graduate at UniCamillus has a particular preparation for the pathologies diffused in the developing countries.

With professional technical autonomy, the graduate autonomously carries out the work in direct collaboration with laboratory graduated staff within their sector; the graduate is responsible for the correct use of analytical procedures in the laboratory and in the application of working protocols defined by managers; he verifies the correspondence of the services provided towards the indicators and standards predefined by the manager of the facility; he checks and verifies the correct functioning of the devices used and provide ordinary maintenance and eventual elimination of small inconveniences; he participates in the programing and organization of the work in the facility that he works in.

The capacity of adequately using English provides the possibility of being inserted in pertinent workplaces not only at a national and European level but also outside the European Community.
