According to the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS), Medical laboratory science professionals, often called medical laboratorians, are vital healthcare detectives, uncovering and providing laboratory information from laboratory analyses that assist physicians in patient diagnosis and treatment, as well as in disease monitoring or prevention (maintenance of health).
Professor and Program Chair for the Clinical Laboratory Science Program at Texas State University in San Marcos, Rodney Rohde, PhD joined me in this Dec. 2016 interview to discuss the profession, educational paths, shortages and other current issues and some thoughts on the future of medical laboratory science.
