American Society for Clinical Pathology Joins the National Healthcare Career Network

Medical society joins growing network of healthcare associations to address high workforce shortage of lab professionals

Washington DC (PRWEB) July 17, 2009 -- The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), a 130,000-member non-profit professional medical society based in Chicago, today announced it is joining the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN).

The NHCN is a coalition of healthcare associations that have joined together to provide job placement and advancement opportunities; career development tools, training, scholarships and resources to mitigate worker shortage challenges facing the healthcare marketplace.

"ASCP is extremely involved in workforce issues, and the NHCN’s mission and strategy dovetail with our overall strategy of working cooperatively with other healthcare associations in addressing the staffing shortages in our field," said John R. Ball, MD, JD, FASCP, ASCP Executive Vice President.

NHCN founding partner, the American Hospital Association (AHA), is pleased to see ASCP join the NHCN. "Allied health positions are among those with the greatest vacancy rates, particularly laboratory professionals," said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions. "ASCP has been very active in addressing workforce-related issues and in raising awareness among lawmakers, the academic community, and the public of the critical role laboratory professionals play within the healthcare system. We look forward to working even more closely with ASCP in strengthening our nation’s healthcare workforce."

The NHCN is quickly becoming the premier resource for matching qualified healthcare professionals with open positions. Comprised exclusively of healthcare associations, the NHCN promotes associations’ job boards as the best resources for finding and developing industry-specific talent. The NHCN’s technology is powered by Boxwood, the leading provider of online career centers to associations and professional trade organizations.

More than 170 top healthcare associations and professional societies, representing over 1.6 million members, have joined the NHCN, devoting resources to help healthcare resolve its crisis.

The NHCN is actively recruiting healthcare associations and professional trade organizations to participate. For more information, visit
