Scholarly activities of the most productive CLS faculty and schools in the U.S.A.
Clin Lab Sci 2010; 23(3):175-9CL

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To assess the research and scholarship of the most productive clinical laboratory science faculty and schools in the United States.

DESIGN

In 2008 a national study involving 106 college and university CLS programs was conducted to determine which faculty members were most productive in research activities. A questionnaire was sent electronically to all faculty (n=448) of 106 NAACLS accredited programs. Data from 275 respondents (61%), from 93 programs (89%) were analyzed.

SETTING

The study took place at The Ohio State University with collaboration from the University of Minnesota.

PARTICIPANTS

Clinical laboratory science faculty within a four-year university or college sponsoring a NAACLS-accredited CLS program, were invited to participate.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES

To quantitate faculty scholarly productivity by point assessment, to assess the top 10% of faculty based on funding, publications, abstracts, presentations, books and chapters, and to identify the 15 highest ranking institutions in terms of their collective faculty research contributions.

CONCLUSIONS

The top 10% of clinical laboratory science faculty (n=28) are performing almost 50% of scholarship in the profession, with major contributions in funding garnered and international presentations. These individuals also generally hold a doctorate, are full professors and tenured. Among the 15 highest ranked colleges and universities with CLS programs, and by cumulative faculty contributions, most are classified as research institutions.
