Lab Director track at ThinkLab '05.
Lab Director track at ThinkLab '05. The University of
Wisconsin and COLA are sponsoring a Laboratory Director education track
at the CLMA/ASCP ThinkLab '05 Conference and Exhibition in Chicago,
March 5-8. Planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential
Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical
Education, the program is targeted at physicians who want to acquire the
CME (continuing medical education) credits necessary to become directors
of moderate-complexity laboratories. Others who will benefit from the
program include clinical lab professionals who require supervisory
skills for physician office laboratory practices. Upon completing the
program, which includes four sessions at the conference and six online
courses delivered through COLA's LabUniversity over the following
six months, physicians will receive Laboratory Director certificates
along with CME credits toward the American Medical Association Physician
Recognition Award. The program is approved by the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services for physicians practicing in CLIA-certified labs.
