The Year in Review
This last year, 2019-2020, has been a particularly challenging one for CMPT. The departure of one of our technologists, Fion Yung, and the temporary absence of our Editor, Veronica Restelli in October 2019 put an extra burden on CMPT staff to deliver the services and fulfill existing engagements with our clients.
CMPT added Shadi Alami as a technologist to the staff in August 2019 and Issa McKinnon joined CMPT as administrative assistant in January 2020. Even with those additions, our coordinator, Esther Kwok, and senior technologist Caleb Lee, had to take on the editorial and web manager functions until our Editor returned in July 2020.
CMPT Professional Development Course – A Survey
As part of its annual Customer Satisfaction review, CMPT seeks the feedback of its clients through surveys that target different aspects or services provided.
This year, CMPT focused on one of our educational components, the Professional Development course offered to Laboratory Technologists and Microbiology Residents.

CMPT welcomes Issa Abrams-McKinnon to its team. Issa joined CMPT in January 2020 as an administrative assistant to help with CMPT’s ever growing and complex logistics.
