Feb 24, 2018

Professor and Program Chair for the Clinical Laboratory Science Program at Texas State University in San Marcos, Rodney Rohde, PhD joined me in this Dec. 2016 interview to discuss the profession, educational paths, shortages and other current issues and some thoughts on the future of medical laboratory science.
