The Department coordinates two study programmes - the Bachelor degree programme Health Laboratory Assistant and the Master's degree graduate programme Specialist in Laboratory Methods (currently awaiting accreditation). These degrees provide professional qualifications for health care workers (except medical doctors) within the Czech Republic's health care system.
Members of the Department provide theoretical and practical instruction in medical molecular biology, microbiology and immunology, physics and informatics, chemistry and biochemistry, haematology and transfusion medicine, medical genetic and genetic toxicology, toxicology, environmental and social epidemiology within Bachelor and Master's degree programmes at the University of Ostrava’s Faculty of Medicine. The Department plays an important role in teaching general medical practice.
The Department's international cooperation is organized via the Erasmus international study exchange programme. Students have the opportunity to take part in exchange study programmes, chiefly at universities in Poland, Slovakia, Belgium and Finland. Student mobility is one of the ways of acquiring knowledge of state-of-the-art approaches in the field of diagnostics and laboratory practice.
