I’d love to see a comparative study of our profession between USA and Canada. The biggest hurdle we face in USA is apathy and lack of advocates within our profession and I think it stems from the fact that we are under the wing of Pathologists. Thanks for letting the world know about about the work we do.

Yes, it's time of being recognized, in the quiet little corner of the Lab, were we spent long hours testing, given invaluable results to save life. Yes , I agree salary must double, by all means.

I agree, wages should increase to retain and attract new med techs. However, most systems see the lab as a production center, thus a commodity! Why should executives increase wages if seen simply as a production facility? Labs must, in collaboration with suppliers like Abbott, elevate themselves and leverage the power they have with data.

Current paradigm is that automation will fix everything with an unparalleled synergy that the need for the human element will wane ( I have seen this mentality through two automations). Fact is, the human element is what brings a face to the amoral number. Human beings are what temper technology with a pathos that machines will never dream of or vitally experience. Data management is the wave that is permeating the industry for a qualitative approach to patient care. Laboratories need to harness this with powerful enthusiasm. As pharmacy is a separate school of thought from medicine in business, so the laboratory needs to exert itself with a manifest destiny of assertiveness relative to data management. Confer is right in the sense of collaboration with suppliers like Abbott.

We are sending your specimen to "the lab." We have you results back from "the lab." It always surprises me how many patients think of "the lab" as an inanimate object. We really are a group of educated, caring professionals working for their health and medical treatment.

But WE need to find a way to toot our own horn to the rest of the medical field and educate the public so that recognition can finally given to all the hard working professions that give so much.

Salary increase is important and should be considered to encourage Medical Laboratory staff. That's the same thing we have been camouring for in Nigeria. Currently, its 1:4 from what Drs take home.

I participated in several high school career fairs informing the students that there are more than just nurses and doctors that work in hospitals. The laboratory is also a great option. We are the heroes behind the scene. Training programs in CA are extremely hard to get into, I’ve been trying for the last two years so am aware of the struggle. But once you’re in...you’re in!! You just have to stay encouraged!!

I am encouraged tremendously by this development. Barack Obama highlighted the profession in 2016 and now WHO. We hope this is the pivatol point for the profession. The next big step is for someone who is an industry leader to run for office especially in the US.
