Medical laboratories are suffering with vacancies and not enough new people entering the medical laboratory professions. There is also so much negative stigma about the medical laboratory in the media. So many times we hear that ‘the lab messed up’ when, in actuality, the error was not the fault of the laboratory at all. It often seems to be the automatic assumption and I strongly believe that needs to change.

Also, why do so many medical TV series show doctors performing the laboratory testing? That certainly could not be further from the truth!”

Dawn Allen Hauser

Dawn is passionate about educating both the general public and those interested in pursuing an education in medical laboratory science or pathology. The purpose of Med Lab Study Hall is to educate those interested in working in the medical laboratory, as well as to keep those currently working in the profession informed and current in their field of study.

In 2020, Med Lab Study Hall piqued the interest of several other Medical Laboratory Professionals passionate about their areas of interest inside the Medical Laboratory. We are a group of women Medical Laboratory Professionals dedicated to Medical Laboratory education and advancement. We are expanding our informational and educational options to capture the interest of as many curious people as possible to increase awareness of the Medical Laboratory as a meaningful and vital part of the patient care team.
