Laboratory analysis via blood, saliva and urine is a vital component of healthcare that is imperative to ensure accurate and appropriate diagnosis, management and treatment of patients. This program is designed with the goal to teach students from all practice types and styles to utilize this tool within their scope and means. Learning disease patterns, severity and ongoing outcome assessment will aid the practitioner when it comes to the utilization of nutrition, diet, exercise, medication, referral needs and outside diagnostic necessity. This program over its continuum will allow each practitioner the chance to gain proficiency in reading, understanding, and the application of lab studies for baseline analysis and specific targeting of disease and pathological physiologic manifestation. Statistics are showing a clear and concise need for an expanding knowledge of new technology in the healthcare field as it pertains to new testing technology and empirical methodology in clinical practice and disease management. Certification and continuing education on this topic ensures that clinicians are better prepared and can offer services that protect the public interest and allows for useful and targeted treatment. The clinician in attendance is expected to be able to review cases with acceptable understanding and pass a written examination on the topic matter.
