ABSTRACT
The Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) is the national certifying body for medical laboratory technologists and medical laboratory assistants. CSMLS has had a prior learning assessment and review process (PLAR) in place since 1999. This article describes how the PLAR process has evolved, and highlights new initiatives to ensure that the process keeps pace with best practices and does not pose unnecessary barriers to internationally educated medical laboratory technologists.
