General Laboratory Medicine

Goal of the Division

It is the representation of the medical doctors-physicians involved in labo ­ratory medicine in Europe who have a general training background and are, in their professional careers, active in the different fields of laboratory medicine (clinical chemistry, haematology-transfusion, microbiology).

In fact, in some countries in Europe, specialists in laboratory medicine do not have a subspecialisation in one of the fields of laboratory medicine and are entitled to be active in all of those different fields.

The focus of the Division is an efficient approach of the various problems that arise in the medical laboratories in European countries through harmonization of practices in the work fields and training as well as further educational programs.

Training: Educational Programs

The basic training is presented in detail in the €œBlue Book € (link ?) and contains the minimal prerequisites for recognition and specialization in the division field. Additional programs are also available, most of them awarded with accreditation at a national or international level (e.g. EACME). Every two years EFLM-UEMS congresses (Lisbon 2010, Dubrovnik 2012) have also proven quite successful.

Boards

Under the umbrella of the section several physicians have been board certified as fellows by the section in general and the division in particular.

This is a honorary distinction which, although not necessary for the practice of the specialty in the various European countries, nevertheless enhances these possibilities through prestige.
