IQMH is seeking a volunteer to sit on its Proficiency Testing Scientific Committee, effective January 1, 2020. Membership on committees consists of a three-year term of office, renewable once. Committees meet an average of four times a year for half-day or full-day meetings.
A gathering of diagnostic medicine leaders and professionals who want to elevate themselves, learn, share, network and get excited about diagnostic medicine; an IQMH Forum is never a typical conference. Why? Each event is underpinned with a specific theme and intention to ensure the programme will drive meaningful change and infuse a new outlook on quality. Our aim is to energetically inspire the diagnostic medicine community to overcome barriers and embrace the future.
The official podcast of the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) The Objective Lens speaks with professionals who can best provide professionals with insight and tools to navigate challenges unique to the medical laboratory.
