What is Clinical Lab Medicine?


Christopher McCudden, PhD, DABCC, FACB

NACB Fellow and 2009 Grannis Award winner Dr. Christopher McCudden has produced a video presentation to explain laboratory medicine to young scientists who may be interested in pursuing a career in laboratory medicine. The presentation is part of his efforts as a member of AACC’s Society of Young Clinical Laboratorians (SYCL) and is based on the work of several SYCL members who have participated in career day events at their alma maters. Their efforts have brought a few new members to the AACC.

The video is part of a page providing career information for new and junior clinical laboratory professionals and is a useful tool for anyone involved in explaining laboratory medicine as a career. It’s not always easy explaining what a clinical chemist is or does but this presentation is a good start. Please click here to view.
