Resident Training in Laboratory Hematology

      The authors of this article formulate a strategy to guide residents and faculty in laboratory hematology. The authors build upon the recommendations of the Academy of Clinical Laboratory Physicians and Scientists (ACLPS) published earlier as well as draw from their own experiences, in discussing principles that should be considered when implementing a program that effectively trains residents to be competent pathologists in the various settings that they may encounter once they complete training.
