Topic: Calling Ourselves MLS—Is it Really so Professionally Important?

Speakers: Kathy Doig, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CMSHCM, and Linda Smith, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CMBBCM

Description: The ASCLS House of Delegates adopted a position paper in June 2020, supporting the designation of Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) as the preferred credential title for baccalaureate-level professionals. History shows that new professional titles can take decades to gain full adoption. As we enter the second decade of MLS certificants, we will make the case for why we cannot wait any longer to fully adopt this title. We will offer suggestions for steps to make MLS the recognized title.
