Yet kind of scary. Highlighting the fact once again that our talents are usually taken for granted and that anyone can do it! Yes, it does give me a warm feeling that we are able to do such a difficult, multi-faceted job and make it look much easier than it is. Let's hope some of those kids are steered in our direction in a couple of years!

Actually, it's not true (what she said), she just didn't grasp the extent of what she was seeing..It's often quite a compliment to hear this, knowing we are so good at what we do that we make it look easy!!!!

That can't be true; well it's certainly not true in the UK as we all know
that all the Lab disciplines are taught in the first semester at Medical
School and all graduates are able to work seamlessly in Labs with no further

I knew all the histonetters would enjoy this one.  I know I haven't been
able to stop chuckling to myself since.  We have 11th and 12th grade
students from the high school come to our hospital and go through each
of the departments to expose them to the different jobs in the hospital.
 Lately a lot of the students have been extremely interested in
histology which is great.  The student today was priceless.  After I
went through explaining all that we do, the student made the comment "Oh
it looks easy".  I said "really?".  Her response "Oh yeah this is stuff
I learned in 6th grade".  I explained that this is much more then a 6th
grade education.  Her attitude was not directed at histology alone but
the entire lab.  You have to love teenagers.
