Washington DC, June 15, 2009 - AACC and its Management Sciences Division announce a Clinical Laboratory Leadership & Management Certificate Program: an online program designed to strengthen and develop laboratory professionals’ existing management skills.
Laboratory professionals have excellent technical skills and the certificate program has been designed to introduce them to the theory and practical applications of effective leadership. The program concentrates on developing the knowledge and abilities required to run a laboratory efficiently and effectively by strengthening the individual’s skills in leadership, time management, personnel management, team development, motivation, and strategic thinking and planning. The program features an expert faculty of experienced educators with extensive knowledge of laboratory operations.
Commencing September 1, 2009, the program consists of six courses which can be completed online in 1-4 hours each. Each course contains a lecture, required reading, and quiz and may include case studies, practical exercises, glossary, and resource materials. There are opportunities for students to interact with the faculty and other participants using the program’s dedicated ‘listserv’.
