Clinical Laboratory Scientists


AACC’s clinical laboratory scientists (CLS) community encompasses all members who work as laboratory management and operational staff, including lab supervisors, managers, and technologists. AACC strives to empower our CLS members to adapt to the complex challenges in healthcare today and to flourish professionally.

Mentoring Connections

SYCL Mentoring Connections is a new program designed to help guide young professionals through early career development and prepare them to become future leaders. The result is a life-long connection that adds value to both sides of the mentoring relationship. Learn how to become a mentor or mentee.
