The primary objective of this program is to train qualified individuals to become certified by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry in chemistry or toxicological chemistry, and to compete for positions as directors of clinical chemistry laboratories. This objective is achieved through training in clinical chemistry, laboratory administration, and research.
This program emphasizes a combination of training in classical clinical chemistry (e.g., blood gases, electrolytes, enzymes, proteins, endocrinology, therapeutic drug monitoring) and specialty areas (clinical toxicology and mass spectrometry). A particular strength of this program is in the area of toxicology where there are collaborations with the California Poison Control Center and UC San Diego Medical Toxicology Fellowship program.

Candidates for admission need to have a PhD (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, pathology, pharmacology or other appropriate scientific discipline) or MD degree.
Applicants should have had sufficient courses in analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and biochemistry to qualify for certification by the American Board for Clinical Chemistry.
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Fitzgerald for information on how to apply to the fellowship
