Abstract:

The Medical Laboratory career ladder was surveyed to provide current data on new procedures being accomplished by medical laboratory personnel and to evaluate the impact of automation on tasks performed. Survey results are based on responses from 874 airmen 89 percent of all eligible 924x0 career ladder personnel. The study identified eight clusters, eight job types, and four good job groups. The jobs within the survey were well defined and a good deal of diversity among the jobs was evident. The job structure essentially remained the same as the previous study indicating stability. The 5-skill level jobs were technical in nature and oriented toward the performance of general medical laboratory tasks, with little responsibility for supervision and management, Seven-skill level personnel spent the majority of their time performing supervisory and administrative functions. The data, therefore, showed a clear progression from worker to supervisor.
