Program Director Survival Strategies 101

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/16/2022)
Presented by Marisa James, MA, MLS(ASCP)CM

Program directors have an overwhelming to do list. There are students to shepherd, faculty to guide, and *GASP* accreditation standards to meet, not to mention trying to manage your own work-life balance. This session will provide attendees with road-tested survival strategies to help maximize your limited amount of time, both personally and professionally, so you can reach your program goals and maintain your sanity.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Discover strategies to use your time more efficiently when managing a Laboratory Educational Program
  • Describe how meeting NAACLS standards can strengthen your Program and engage your faculty
  • Brainstorm ideas to help you, your faculty, and your students achieve work life balance
