Michener launches two-day medical lab worker training program

October 19, 2020

The Michener Institute has launched a new two-day intensive program to train medical lab workers. This program will help address the backlog of COVID-19 tests by training up to 600 students to do preliminary lab work, thus reducing the workload of certified technologists and assistants. Students will participate in a blended program, with an online portion as well as hands-on lab experience. “What we’re doing is really taking an educational strategy that extends the clinical team that supports the labs and the testing that’s needed for COVID-19,” said Maria Tassone, senior director of the School of Continuing Education at the Michener Institute.
