The MLT Program has an active advisory committee which is the cornerstone for advice and curriculum change. The members are responsible for keeping our curriculum up-to-date and ensuring the quality of our on-site clinical training to meet the needs of the medical laboratory profession. Members discuss general program content, strategic planning, clinical training, job opportunities, career trends, etc.
The MLT Program Advisory Committee meets quarterly and is attended by representatives from PCC and from laboratories throughout Portland and Oregon. There are also subcommittees for Blood Bank, Chemistry, Hematology, Microbiology, Phlebotomy, and Laboratory Information Systems. The subcommittees meet to discuss specific curriculum issues. The Advisory Committee and its subcommittees give everyone the opportunity to participate in the exchange of information, and curriculum evaluation for the MLT Program.
Our advisory committee includes representatives from:
- Adventist Medical Center
- Kaiser Permanente Northwest Region Laboratories
- Legacy Health System
- Providence Health System
- Willamette Valley Medical Center
