From:"Bartlett, Jeanine \(CDC/NCID/VR\)" lists approved programs for schools of histotechnology.

  Barry University and Miami Dade College, both in Miami, have reputable histology courses.

  Well, she initially majored in the correct field of study to enter Histology. A BS or MS is desirable with majors in Biology/Chemistry. There are assorted schools/courses of study for Histology scattered about the US. One is in Jacksonville, FL and we have one here at Florida Hospital although we only take five students per year (and this coming year was just selected). Indiana University also has a good program, which is the program we have connected to to teach our students. A search online should help as well. Janet

Hi, folks, 

I'm back after a long absence, and at a new address. 
Because I am only a psychologist, I have no idea where to send my student who really wants to spend her life in a research laboratory doing histology! She is currently graduating from Slippery Rock University with a degree in psychology, but I have sent her to the chemistry department and she has taken chemistry and is now taking two organic chemistry classes as a post bac in order to get herself somewhat more ready to do what she has discovered she loves to do. She has spent the last four years here with me doing work with mice, and is currently sectioning mouse brains on my ancient ultramicrotome and using a simple Richardson stain. She loves working at the scope counting injured cells! 

So, where can she go for additional training? Is this something she needs a masters to do, or are there training programs available that will teach her immuno and fluorescent and all those other things that I've heard of but have no idea how to do? She's a fantastic young woman who washed mouse cages for me for over a year when we had no cage washer, and is very dedicated and willing to do the "grunt work" 
that others disdain. Any suggestions?
