    Summary: The second edition of Laboratory Administration for Pathologists covers all aspects of clinical and anatomic pathology laboratory administration. Taking a practical approach, this book provides the core principles and tools of management for the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine. The basics of financial, operations, and quality management are covered and complemented by rarely found discussions of the “soft” sides of management and leadership, such as communication, ethics, and decision making. Personnel sections separately address important issues for the large laboratory as well as independent group practice; another section is aimed at pathologists who are seeking and evaluating a position themselves. Included are summaries and case studies, which carry the text beyond a straightforward reference for practitioners, serving as a self-study curriculum for a laboratory management course. Pathologists will find this text useful either as a quick reference tool or to review management for maintenance of certification. Residents will find this text valuable for board preparation and in rotations related to management training. Includes updated content throughout and a new chapter on patient safety.
