UNM School of Medicine General Clinical Research Center Receives Perfect Score and Re-Accreditation

 

            CAP accreditation is considered by many to be the "gold standard" of laboratory accreditation.  More than 6,300 laboratories participate in the voluntary program, which has a two-year accreditation cycle.

The accreditation program examines several aspects of quality improvement, including monitoring of general quality control, test methodologies and specifications, reagents, controls, equipment, specimen handling, test reporting, internal performance assessment and external proficiency testing.  In addition, personnel requirements, safety, document management and other management practices are included in the inspection process.

The Core Lab is under the directorship of David S. Schade, M.D.   Core staff include:  Tony Brazfield, MT (ASCP), Lab Manager; Sue Lee (Chemistry); Josephine Morris (Mass Spectrometry); Bill McCurdy and Morgan Holden (Specimen Processing) and student Vanessa Archer.
