Educators are the first and most impactful influencers on future professionals. The Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference is the single largest gathering of clinical laboratory educators with more than 500 attendees each year. Participants include a critical mass of thought leadership from hospital and college/university-based educational programs for clinical laboratory scientists, clinical laboratory technicians, Masters, PhD, and DCLS-level programs including department chairs, program directors, faculty members, education coordinators and clinical coordinators, and advisors.
Educators and industry have mutual interest in advancing and impacting the profession. In partnership, laboratory science educators and industry both bring value to an environment of learning, creativity, and innovation. The goals of our 36th conference include enhancing instructional skills, developing innovative teaching techniques, and identifying trends and strategies to manage the changing profession. All industry partners are full registrants and encouraged to attend educational sessions that impact their diagnostic area or any area of interest. Partners are welcome to engage in conversations throughout the space and participate in social activities.
Engagement packages are designed to be right-sized and all-inclusive for any industry partner’s needs. However, we anticipate that some individual companies will have unique needs that require custom solutions. ASCLS is pleased to work with partners to develop customized solutions that meet the partner’s business goals for their investment and participation.
