Laboratory medicine education in United States medical schools.
The Academy of Clinical Laboratory Physicians and Scientists conducted a survey of US medical schools to examine the current status of laboratory medicine education, estimate the amount of teaching time available in the cumiculum, and identify the most effective teaching practices.
Questionnaires were sent to department heads and course directors at 126 US medical schools.
Replies were received from 120 schools (95%), 83 of which offered a total of 132 courses in laboratory medicine.
Only 68 schools (57%) had required courses.
Most of the elective courses (35 of 50 ; 70%) were in general clinical pathology.
Lectures remained the most common teaching format, with or without laboratory sessions and workshops.
Computer-assisted instruction was used in only 10 schools.
