Entrance into a clinical chemistry career in the US can be obtained through a variety of avenues, ranging from very formal to no formal training requirements.
A frequent starting point is through a formal medical technology program at the baccalaureate level.
Nonphysicians, interested in an advanced career, have also the option to choose their point of entrance through a formal graduate or postdoctoral program.
The main source for obtaining a Master of Science or Doctoral degree with a major in the clinical laboratory sciences, is through Departments of Pathology.
Physicians desiring to subspecialize in clinical chemistry can obtain some of the training through a residency program in Pathology.
Clinical chemistry is an essential component of both the clinical pathology (CP) residency and the combined residencies in anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP).
In addition, fellowships in clinical chemistry are available for graduates with doctorate degrees in the chemical and biological sciences as well as for physicians with laboratory experience.
