This is Peggy Wenk. I am the program director
of a HT and a HTL program at a hospital, and
I am giving a workshop at NSH on how to set 
up a HT or HT school.

If anyone is interested in how to start a program, 
please give me a call at 248/551-9079. (work)

PLEASE, only call me if you are REALLY interested
in starting a program. If you have some hospitals
and/or colleges SERIOUSLY interested in starting
a program. We need to talk for a LONG time, 
and probably several times. But I can
give you some ideas on how to start. I have helped
other hospitals and colleges with ideas, and
try to come up with ideas that would work given
the hospitals and/or colleges involved (there is
no RIGHT way to set up a program. There are, on
the other hand, wrong ways.)

If you simply think a school is a good idea, or
something you can do in your "spare time" at 
work, or because you have always wanted to teach, 
or are just curious, please don't call. I don't
mean to sound rude, but these conversations do
take up a lot of my time (read hours), and as you 
know, time is limited to everyone who works in a 

So, yes, I'm willing to to talk, but PLEASE, 
don't all 1200+ histonetters try calling me
on this topic.

I have thought about giving this as a teleconference,
but am concerned that this is a really limited
topic with a very small audience. Maybe those who
are just curious, etc., could let me know if this
is a teleconference you would like to hear. Respond
via histonet or through my home email which is:

> I'm asking these questions for a fellow histotechnologist, Pam Buzzard, who resides in Georgia. She will be joining the Histonet soon. Does the NSH offer any scholarships for attending nationals? Does anyone have a suggested curriculum with what each course should entail as far as starting a histotech program is concerned?  She has been asked by a local college to initiate a program, but has little info to go on. I have already suggested attending the workshop that is going to be offered at Nationals this year. I will inform her of all answers posted on the histonet, but she can otherwise be contacted at
