Outside the Lab Profession, Quality assurance and quality control, Training and education

Peer-to-Peer, Featuring Jeffrey Myers

At a Glance

  • Creativity and collaboration are vital to laboratory medicine – and physical spaces should be designed to facilitate both
  • A good lab medicine professional should be honest, curious, and dedicated to the fair and equal treatment of all patients and colleagues
  • Success doesn’t always mean having a definite plan; you might be surprised at how far you get by simply trusting your instincts
  • It’s important to have outside interests to maintain work-life balance

Jeffrey Myers is the A. James French Professor of Diagnostic Pathology and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs and Quality in Michigan Medicine’s Department of Pathology at the University of Michigan. He also serves as Director of MLabs, the institution’s reference laboratory division. A general surgical pathologist, he is increasingly focused on his subspecialty interest in thoracic pathology, but also has a longstanding commitment to quality and safety, accompanied by a more recent focus on patient- and family-centered care.

His career has given him plenty to think about, and the many people he has had the privilege of mentoring or being mentored by have taught him valuable lessons. Now, in an interview with professional colleague Ivan Damjanov, Jeffrey Myers shares what he has learned to benefit his colleagues in the pathology sphere.
