Certification

At MSACL 2018 EU there was a Discussion Session to explore certification for clinical mass spectrometrists. The panel included representatives from Japan, Australia, Germany, Canada and the United States. Although limited training options and barriers to certification appeared to be the norm, there was enthusiasm around the goals of standardizing training curriculum (PDF), defining the required competencies (PDF), and providing a template for local professional societies and regulatory bodies who want to offer certification.
