REGISTER OF EXPERTS IFCC has established a database of experts from around the world who have offered to share their scientific or management expertise with senior trainees or newly qualified laboratory medicine practitioners. The collaboration will be short-term and will relate to a specific topic raised by the enquirer. Practitioners wishing to contact an Expert should use the link below. This will take you to the list of available expertise and the experts who are willing to provide information or advice. To contact an Expert, it is necessary for the enquirer to complete a short form, which is then submitted electronically to the IFCC Office. The WG-PS will then arrange an introduction to the most appropriate Expert. • To contact an Expert, go to: http://www.ifcc.org/ifcc-education-division/experts/. IFCC is keen to expand the number of Experts on its database. Therefore, the WG-PS invites senior practitioners with expertise in one or more areas of laboratory medicine to apply to be an Expert. This process involves completion of a short form, which is submitted to the IFCC Office, for consideration by the WG-PS. • To apply to be an Expert, go to the WG-PS website page and download the form, available at the following link: http://www.ifcc.org/media/477450/application-form-expert_ifcc_register-of-experts.doc.
