Learning Lab for Laboratory Medicine is an adaptive e-learning product for preparation for certification, competency assessment, and continuing medical education. This program has been endorsed by the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine and honored by the prestigious Comenius EduMedia Award for excellence in Continuing Professional Education. The Learning Lab is now available in two versions: Advanced, and for Medical Laboratory Scientists (MLS).

The program is sectioned into the following seven major pillars in Laboratory Medicine:

GENERAL LAB MEDICINE

Covers principles in laboratory medicine, such as safety, management, leadership, statistics and machine learning.

COURSES

CLINICAL CHEMISTRY

Covers analytical techniques and instrumentation, pathophysiology of various organ systems and the corresponding analytes.

COURSES

LABORATORY GENOMICS

Covers principles of molecular biology, nucleic acid techniques and applications, pharmacogenetics, forensic testing, molecular tumor markers, monogenic and polygenic basis for common and rare diseases.

COURSES

TRANSFUSION MEDICINE

Covers testing in the blood bank, transfusion service techniques, indications for transfusion, blood products and modifications, adverse events associated with transfusion of blood products, and transfusion reactions.

COURSES

HEMATOLOGY AND COAGULATION

Covers analytical techniques and instrumentation, hematopoiesis, iron metabolism (including hemo- globin, iron, bilirubin, anemia), red and white blood cell disorders, platelet disorders, porphyrins and porphyrias, hematologic neoplastic disorders, hemostasis and coagulation.

COURSES

CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY

Covers microbes (bacteriology, mycobacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology, prions) and associated infectious diseases, antiinfectives, infection control, and diagnostics as well as infection control and disease surveillance.

COURSES

CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY

Covers primary immunodeficiencies, allergic diseases, organ-specific and systemic auto-immune diseases, and monoclonal gammopathies.

UNIQUENESS
OF LEARNING LAB

COLLABORATIVE EFFORT

Learning Lab was the result of a collaborative effort between NEJM Group, the most trusted and respected name in medical science, AACC, a recognized leader in laboratory medicine, and Area9, a global leader in education technology.

ADAPTIVE LEARNING

Learning Lab utilizes adaptive learning. Through a series of questions while timing the learner and asking about the level of confidence in the answer, sophisticated algorithms identify the areas in which the learner is not proficient and provides targeted learning materials.

MICRO LEARNING

Learning Lab enables learning in small blocks of time since most professionals are not always able to find the time needed to read long review articles.

MOBILE

Learning Lab enables learning wherever you are as the program can be accessed on mobile devices.

PEER COMPARISON

Learning Lab allows the learners to monitor their progress and provides comparison to peer groups.

LIFE-LONG LEARNING

Learning Lab is a life-long learning companion.

COMPREHENSIVE MATERIAL
IN LABORATORY MEDICINE

The content for each program area, created and edited by leaders in the field, addresses different topics in that discipline. Subscribers get access to the entire library of courses plus a new course each month. Each course contains questions and answers in a variety of engaging formats. Valuable learning resources provide background information on each question if you want to go deeper or need a reminder.

After participating in the Learning Lab modules, you will be able to:

  • Understand overall laboratory management, leadership, and federal compliance
  • Apply statistical assessment and quality assessment in the overall variability assessment of laboratory measurements
  • Interpret laboratory values in physiological states (e.g. age, race, gender, pregnancy) and pathological states
  • Evaluate new technologies and methodologies for implementation in clinical laboratory testing
  • Describe major sources of preanalytical and analytical error in clinical laboratory testing and apply this knowledge in interpretation of laboratory results
  • Understand basic pathophysiology and its impact on clinical laboratory testing
