Happy group of members at the the Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine (formerly AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting

International Membership Grants

Two-year the Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine (ADLM) professional memberships are available to early- and mid-career clinical laboratorians from underserved areas worldwide. Each membership includes a subscription to ADLM’s flagship journal Clinical Chemistry, online access to The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine, registration discounts for the ADLM Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, full access to the Artery online community, discounts on ADLM webinars, and much more.

Am I Eligible?

Requirements include proof of current employment in the field of laboratory medicine and a desire to keep up with the latest advances in the field. In selecting grant recipients, preference is given to those who are in the early part of their career and have responsibilities that would allow them to share their member benefits. Applicants who are current ADLM members or have been ADLM members in the past two years will be considered ineligible.

Additionally, please note that if you are awarded a membership grant, you will be required to submit feedback annually on how your membership has benefited you and others in your healthcare community.
