Paolo Mocarelli

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The profession of clinical laboratory technologist has undergone profound changes in the last decades and scientific as well as technological advancement will cause further continued evolution. Therefore, adaptability to a rapidly evolving environment and willingness to continuously update knowledge as well as skills seem to be the most important demands confronting technologists. I compare the current training of clinical laboratory technologist in industrialized countries with emerging educational schemes, which include curricula based on national requirements comprising a total of 3-4 years of formal lectures and practical training.
