Special request for a friend/competency programs

From:Gayle Callis <uvsgc@msu.oscs.montana.edu>

Dear Histonetters,

I have a special request for competency testing information from a lady who
does not participate in Histonet.  Could you please help her out and email
the information privately, directly to her home email address. You can
discuss this further with Diane.

Hello everyone

        I am looking for laboratories that perform Histology laboratory
personnel competency testing in their facilities and would be willing to
share their program with me.  There are numerous programs that address MT,
MLT, Cytotechnicians, Blood bank and other specialties but the only one
strictly for histotechnicians is the NSH booklets which does not completely
cover the different types of histology technique specialties.
Since the FDA regulations require competency testing in animal type
facilities and we all follow GLPs, we need to include some of the
procedures that the histotechnicians perform in veterninary/animal
facilities along with any new programs from clinical/hospital laboratories.
 Any information sent to me will be used to update the National Society for
Histotechnology (NSH) competency program to include all types of histology
laboratories.  Laboratories and other facilities  submitting their programs
will be acknowledged/referenced in the updated NSH competency program.   
Please email your program information to
Diane Sterchi
