Laboratory professionals are often asked to give talks and/or presentations at career day or other recruitment events for elementary, middle, high school, or college-age students. The Medical Laboratory Careers Tool Kit is a collection of recruitment materials, some of which are free, and activities that can be used to assist in giving a presentation. Other items found in the tool kit are information about the workforce shortage, education programs, certification agencies, and personnel licensure information. The site is designed for all laboratory professionals — staff techs, supervisors, managers, and educators. Middle school and high school educators are also welcome to use the resources provided in this tool kit. Click on each tab below to access the resources within this tool kit.
