While proficiency testing has been forced to assume an expanded role as a regulatory tool, it has always placed an emphasis on education as an opportunity for improvement. This concept dovetails effectively with the Academy's educational foundation and continued insistence that through educational endeavors, the family physician can maintain competency which assists in providing high quality medical care.
The formation of the AAFP-PT Advisory Committee is an advantageous and centralized method to provide the scientific input necessary in maintaining a proficiency testing program that meets both the educational needs of the laboratory and the requirements of the regulatory bodies.
This committee's functions are to assist in:
Paul Fischer, MD
Verlin Janzen, MD, FAAFP
Barbara Mitchell, MS, MT(ASCP)
Lisa Henderson, MPA, MT(ASCP), CLS(NCA)
Cheryl Murray, MPA, MT(ASCP)SM
