The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is a professional association based in Chicago, Illinois encompassing 130,000 pathologists and laboratory professionals.
(MLS is the acronym for Medical Laboratory Scientist)
I received this notice today from the American Society for Clinical Pathology:
Dear James V Kohl, MLS(ASCP)CM,
Congratulations on successful completion of the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) Certification Maintenance Program. Your MLS certification is now valid through August 31, 2018.
You will receive a new CMP wall certificate within 3-5 weeks with your new valid certification dates.
Board of Certification
Other scientists who are required to successfully complete continuing education credits that cross the disciplines that are integrated into what is known about Medical Genetics might also have updated their knowledge base. It may include what is known about the role of viruses and the role of nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in cell type differentiation via the physiology of reproduction in all living genera.
Unfortunately, no one can be forced to learn anything knew, which is why some people do not — unless their certification status is threatened by their failure to do so. What have you learned about anti-entropic epigenetic traps and color perception? Is the epigenetic effect on hormones that affect behavior linked from big bang cosmology and creation to biophysically constrained virus-driven genomic entropy?
