December 21, 2018 10:53 AM | Norma Erickson

ASCLS follows up its position paper on the laboratory workforce shortage by posting fourteen position statements meant to offer solutions for the problem. Number ten addresses laboratory certification as essential for "appropriately educated and adequately trained staff." The program directors of Indiana‚Äôs Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) and Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) programs team up form the Consortium of Indiana Medical Laboratory Educators (CIMLE), a non-profit educational organization. The Consortium offers a one day comprehensive review course for Clinical Laboratory Science. Presenters are current or past instructors for clinical laboratory science programs in Indiana. The review course targets students currently enrolled in laboratory science clinical programs who are preparing to sit for national certification exams after graduation.  They also participate in a match process to place students in the best programs for their needs.
