Ms. Rutchel B. Ballesta, a BS MLS Class 2016 and one of the first USAPMTIAA scholars, successfully hurdled her American Society for Clinical Pathology International (ASCPi) certification.  The ASCP website describes this certification as follows: “The ASCPi credential certifies professional competency among new and practicing laboratory personnel in an effort to contribute globally to the highest standards of patient safety. Graduates of medical laboratory science programs outside the United States are challenged with content that mirrors the standards of excellence established by ASCP exams.”
