The Use of Admissions Management Solutions in Medical Laboratory Science Programs

From the 2020 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (February 28, 2020)
Presented by Kathleen Hoag, Maribeth Flaws, Kathy Kenwright and Hassan Aziz
Several professional programs utilize a centralized application service (CAS) to manage admissions. The participation of the medical laboratory science programs in one of these available systems has been extremely limited. The use of a national CAS system, supported by our professional associations, can manage the enrollment efforts of the programs, make more strategic decisions based on key enrollment and trend data, increase operational efficiencies and improve enrollment results, deliver an application experience that reflects high standards of excellence, and improve the reputation of the profession with prospective students. The presentation will conclude with a comparison of another professional CAS system in terms of enrollment management and data analysis.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Identify admissions management solutions available to Medical Laboratory Science academic programs
2. Summarize potential benefits of using national admissions management solutions
3. Compare admissions management solutions in terms of enrollment management and data analysis
