The purpose of this study was to determine best methods in teaching utilization of lab information systems necessary for trainees utilizing the systems as a required part of on-call service to the Clinical Chemistry fellowship. Specifically, the study looked at effectiveness of trainee navigational learning through the module training information. The determination will continue with the newly added senior fellow training utilization of the lab information systems and consider the necessity of moving forward with the learning modules. Surveys and a Likert Scale with additional paragraph explanations were given to two individuals within the test group to determine the usefulness and possible changes. Results shared the query module was preferred for its usefulness and the additional two modules are necessary, though suggested to condense the information to two pages through combining information from several pages. Both trainees within the test group requested the module information be offered at the beginning of the academic year to support use within these systems even prior to on-call duties.
