The IQMH office is closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have moved to a virtual office. More info: IQMH Response to COVID-19.
We are pleased to announce that our online Assessor Application Form is now available on the IQMH website for submissions from applicants of the laboratory community as well as from the diagnostic imaging community. Laboratory assessor applications were suspended for a length of time because there was a backlog of applicants awaiting laboratory assessor training. This backlog has now been addressed. At this time, we are particularly looking for laboratory applicants in all disciplines who can work in both English and French.

Laboratory preparedness can make or break an IQMH assessment visit. The assessment team members rate assessment visits as “good” or “bad,” not by the number of non-conformances observed, but by the degree to which laboratory personnel are prepared and engaged in the process. A well-prepared laboratory will be much more satisfied with the assessment results than an unprepared one.
IQMH brings together experts in the field of laboratory medicine in order to elevate confidence in the healthcare system.
