Laboratory Administration for Pathologists covers all aspects of clinical and anatomic pathology laboratory administration. In a practical approach, this book provides the core principles and tools of management for the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine.
The basics of financial, operations and quality management are covered and complemented by rarely found discussion of the “soft” sides of management and leadership, such as communication, ethics, and leadership decision making. Personnel sections separately address important issues for the large laboratory as well as independent group practice. Another section is for pathologists who are seeking and evaluating a position themselves.
The many tables, charts and chapter appendices offer a “checklist” approach to important but infrequent tasks, which will be valuable not only to the newly appointed laboratory director but also to the experienced pathologist who faces changing roles and work complexity.
The summaries, case studies and challenge questions carry the text beyond a straightforward reference for practitioners and could serve as a self-study curriculum for a laboratory management course. Pathologists will find this text useful either as a quick reference tool or to review management for maintenance of certification. Residents will find this text valuable for board preparation and in rotations related to management training.
