Almost anywhere in the U.S. is "upnorth" to you.  The most southern program is at Duke and all the restare either in New England or near the great lakes.  There is nothingwest of the Mississippi and I do think that it is because of thepopulation centers.  Ohio State and Rosalind Franklin are the newestschools and I am sure more will open because of the increasing demandfor PA's.Chuck   -----Original Message-----From: Joe Nocito [] Sent: Tuesday, February 22, 2005 8:32 AMTo: Charles.Embrey; Jesus Ellin; cfockler@mail1.vcu.eduCc: histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSubject: RE: [Histonet] Grossing TechChuck,is any reason given as to why all the programs are up north?

Once you have started the dutiesyour employer has lost his incentive to get this done.  As far as payraise is concerned it would really depend on the extent of your grossingand time involved.  Personally I think the raise negotiations shouldstart at $5.00 for small biopsies and increase with the level ofspecimen difficulty.  The biggest problem I have found is that peopletend to underestimate their worth.  The only other option for grossingis a pathologist or pathologists' assistant and you would still be asteal with a $5.00 raise.  If you enjoy grossing you should apply to oneof the PA schools.  It is only an additional two years of school, one ofwhich is actual grossing at clinical sites.  I teach second year PAstudents from Rosalind Franklin University in Chicago and my twostudents that graduate in April have already signed great contracts.Good LuckCharles Embrey PA(ASCP)Urbana, IL-----Original Message-----From:[] On Behalf Ofcfockler@mail1.vcu.eduSent: Thursday, February 17, 2005 6:33 AMTo: histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSubject: [Histonet] Grossing TechJust a quick question.. . what is the average pay increase to go froma standard histotech, to a grossing tech?
