Inside the Lab

Inside the Lab is ASCP’s podcast focusing on current topics showcasing the everyday laboratory professional and pathologist. The podcast’s goal is to generate thought-provoking discussions about topics relevant to the field of pathology and laboratory medicine.

Episodes will center on current topics, such as COVID-19, mentorship, burnout, retention of community practitioners, serology, patient care, and more to build awareness of the work of pathologists and laboratory professionals.
