Abstract:The overall objective was implementation of a fully integrated and functional CORE laboratory. The “CORE laboratory” is a model of a fully integrated and functional, multifaceted, clinical laboratory. Delineation of the process is to enable clinical laboratory managers, in the government or civilian sectors, to make sound decisions about formulating and implementing the CORE laboratory concept. The defining and comprehensive decisions should be based on concept requirements, advantages, disadvantages, and employee core competency assessments. Operationally, the organizational change resulted in well-rounded, multidisciplinary, multiskilled laboratorians and instructors/mentors for the Phase II military medical laboratory technician (91K student) training program. As of this time, our laboratory is the only Department of the Army medical center that operates a fully integrated and functional CORE laboratory.
