Clinical Microbiology Proficiency Testing program, a program of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine held its annual general meeting in the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre October 16-17. It is a time to bring all the committees and volunteers together to review the activities of the year past and to start the discussion on goals and objectives for the year forward. The meeting brings together people from across Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia).
Highlights from the past year included re-affirmation of our ISO certification (ISO9001:2015) and accreditation (ISO IEC 17043:2010), increased participation from US, Europe, and Africa and news of new interest in South America and Europe. For a group with a small footprint (Dr. Noble and 4 staff) CMPT is able to cast a very long shadow across Canada and around the world.
