The Centre for Proficiency Testing is recruiting a Consultant Technologist primarily to manage the Transfusion Medicine Proficiency Testing program. This is a mature program that requires ongoing development and innovation. The successful candidate will be expected to have sufficient flexibility to take on the administration of other programs from time to time as required and IQMH is looking for innovation, ideas and energy to take its proficiency testing to higher levels of excellence.
You will be responsible for collaborating with members of our transfusion medicine scientific committee and IQMH staff to design, plan and implement various medical laboratory proficiency testing models. This includes monitoring laboratory performance and developing quality improvement initiatives. In addition, you will be interacting with participating laboratories to address their sites’ survey inquiries.

“Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry, trust the process.”
- Alexandra Stoddard
This quote by Alexandra Stoddard was the living embodiment of the laboratory management and staff at the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their process to accreditation was a few years in the making, and they showed great patience working through each step with guidance from the CDC team and IQMH. Their full dedication to “Trusting the process” got them to their endpoint – ISO 15189 Accreditation. Congratulations NIPH! Your hard work and dedication have paid off!
Public Health Ontario (PHO), in partnership with the Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare (IQMH), has published its annual laboratory and hospital survey report on antimicrobial resistance in common hospital pathogens in Ontario.
The Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) has established an award named in honour of Gaman Modi a former volunteer member of the IQMH community whose volunteer contribution is difficult to measure and quantify.
IQMH is proud to be part of the medical laboratory community! It’s important to us to share this pride by supporting National Medical Laboratory Week, an event sponsored by the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) since 1985.
