For all of you Histonetters out there I have a question about training
individuals to gross in small specimens.  Can a person with a degree and
being a Cytotechnologist, Medical Technologist or a Histotechnologist
gross in small biopsy samples?  And if they can, what kind of training
is required and for how long?  We are losing one of our PA's and are
contemplating replacing that person with a person with a degree. Thanks
for the info.
