Kahler, Carol, Ed.; And Others
Prepared by the American Association of Junior Colleges and the National Council on Medical Technology Education, this guide discusses programs for career-entry supportive medical laboratory personnel which have been cooperatively planned by junior college personnel and the medical community, particularly pathologists and medical technologists. Section 1 provides guidelines for achieving these program development goals: (1) Define the scope of the program, (2) Become aware of program requirements for professional approval, licensure, and certification, (3) Review college philosophy, goals, and orientation in relation to implementation of the program, (4) Evaluate the need for medical laboratory technicians in the community, (5) Evaluate the feasibility of the college offering a program, (6) Obtain program resources and prepare for use, (7) Develop a curriculum, and (8) Evaluate the program. Section 2 describes in checklist form the actions the college administrator, program director, and pathologist should conduct to achieve the goals. Eligibility requirements for certification, reference organizations, reference publications, and laws covering medical laboratories are appended. (SB)
