National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (NMLPW)
Have you heard of National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (NMLPW)? It's also known as "Lab Week" and it's starting today and it runs from April 19-25, 2009. The theme will be “Laboratory Professionals Get Results.” For more information, visit the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP). The field of pathology has many opportunities in non-clinical medicine for healthcare professionals. I knew several medical students who went into pathology because they didn't feel suited for patient interactions.
