An interview with Elissa Passiment: The History and Future of Medical Laboratory Scientists

Elissa Passiment

When Elissa Passiment studied medical laboratory science decades ago, she believed physicians would appreciate her advice on testing strategies. This didn’t always turn out to be true. Yet, she never backed down from her conviction that lab professionals should play a much larger clinical role than simply performing tests. In our interview, this former executive VP of the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science discusses the history of clinical labs and medical lab scientists, and why she is optimistic about the profession’s future.
