Why do I enjoy?
<color><param>0100,0100,0100</param> The reasons for enjoying/doing Histology have been eloquently
explained by many of you. I fell in love with Pathology, and the
"hands on" aspect of Histology and pretty dyes and stains had the
edge over the other disciplines (in those days there was a choice).
I stopped being a Biomedical Scientist 12 years ago, went into
research and never regretted it, better pay and conditions, a
chance to understand what Histology/Pathology is really about,
and a life outside of work. I do miss the patient contact though,
visits to wards and clinics, but would not go back. After 26 years of
Histology and Pathology I am now ready for early retirement and a
change of direction.
Respect to all you Histologists, especially the overworked,
underestimated, unrecognised and underpayed UK biomedical
Medical Research Council,
