During this simulation, you will inhabit the role of a clinical practicum student in their final week of a clinical chemistry rotation. You will work closely with a medical laboratory technologist who is in charge of the local quality assurance program. You will interact with short term and long term quality control data, and learn about some of the factors that impact decisions about the specific quality control materials that are used in the clinical laboratory. Familiarity with basic clinical laboratory workflow and application of quality control theory is important for success in this simulation.
Define quality assurance and describe how it applies to the histopathology laboratory.
Simulation Modality:Virtual gaming simulation / virtual patient
This simulation’s scenario and script were formally peer-reviewed by two external institutions, then the final simulation was pilot tested by several students on a student testing committee then as part of the Virtu-WIL Student Program’s rollout.
