What is Lab Week?

By Elizabeth Walker | 5 April

April 24 - 30, 2017

Medical Laboratory Professionals Week originated in 1975 as a national event in order to raise public awareness, understanding and appreciation of the impact that laboratories play in a patient’s diagnosis and care. The week also strives to help the public understand the quality and professional accountability that clinical laboratories have relating to the patient. Laboratorians play a vital role as a member of the health care team. This is also a moment for laboratory staff to be recognized for their contributions to patient care while having fun with their coworkers. Please check out all the UM Pathology lab activities using the buttons below.

Before Lab Week Starts

We have great opportunities this year that allows you to participate. But you have to act fast!

"On The Right Path(ology)" Video

Our video stars YOU - our labs!  The concept was to showcase the labs in a classic early-90s TV intro in all its cheesy-ness.  This video was also submitted to a nationwide video contest and the winner will be announced April 21st!  The winner receives a prize, so we're hoping to receive your help, and your VOTE, to guarantee our win!  

Go to the contest site to view our Video and cast in your vote!  Be sure to get it in before April 20th!

Sign up to receive your very own trading card, with picture and stats! On April 25th, all labs will participate in our Trading Day. Each member that signs up for a card will receive a packet of cards, but you may not receive your own--you'll have to trade with others to find it. But you must sign up for your card between April 1st - April 19th, 2017. After April 19th, the sign-up form will no longer be available. Make sure you sign up today!

We are no longer taking submissions
