ASHI Technologists Survey

Have you taken ASHI's Technologist Survey yet? 

The ASHI Technologist Affairs Committee is conducting a survey of all HLA technologists in North America. This survey is completely anonymous and consists of general questions from location and gender to more specific questions like salary information and compensation for on-call pay. Please take time to thoughtfully answer each question and feel free to add any comments or other information at the end of the survey. Our goal is for each North American HLA technologist to have the opportunity to take this survey so if someone in your lab did not receive the email link please forward the email to them. Once the survey results are tabulated, the summary will be made available on the ASHI website inside the member's only section.

The ASHI Technologist Affairs Committee wants to thank you in advance for your participation in this important survey!!
