Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
