APSU’s Scanlan Named Section Editor for Scholarly MT Journal

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Dr. Perry Scanlan, director of Austin Peay State University’s medical technology program, occasionally gets phone calls from potential students, asking him where in Texas the University is located.

“That makes me chuckle,” he said. “Because of our name, they always think we’re from Austin, Texas.”

This confusion will likely end in the next few months now that APSU’s MT program is getting a little more national recognition. Earlier this year, Scanlan was named clinical practice editor for the Journal of the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science, meaning both his name and the University’s name will appear prominently on the first page, under the masthead, of the nationally renowned publication.
