About this course

The medical tests that can give you a great deal of information about your patient may have been already done!

The routine medical tests doctors run hold a terrific amount of data about your patient. We can learn a lot from the Complete Blood Count, Urinalysis and Chemistry panels.

The Foundation Diagnostics Masterclass will give a deep understanding of these valuable and often free medical tests. Importantly, your presenters will focus on more than the direct parameter interpretation, they will elaborate on the inter-relationships between each of these. See the program below for the exact details on the pathology you will be covering.

Before you order expensive and time-consuming tests, make sure you’ve obtained all of the valuable data found in those tests that medical doctors request all day, every day and will likely have already done for your patients.
