Laboratory Management

Laboratories cannot function solely with experts in science and technology. Every organization needs leaders who can effectively manage human, physical and monetary resources and can create an environment in which top quality science can be practiced at a profit. Changes in the way health care is being delivered and the ways in which services are determined as medically necessary and eligible for insurance reimbursement must be monitored by vigilant lab managers everywhere. In addition, as technology expands, lab managers must become expert in computer systems which not only increase laboratory efficiency but which provide real-time links with many institutional departments and with health care providers in the community. Therefore, the curriculum continually provides students with education in many of the relevant issues in clinical laboratory management.
