Re: UK employment


it is very difficult to meet the standards required to work in histology in the UK.  when i was there i was amazed to find that after a degree the techs had to go thru an on the job training program for up to 2 years in order to work at the histopathology entry level.  they did not get paid well
as trainees, about $14,000. US per year.  can you imagine requiring someone to have a degree and train for 2 years before being able to work in histology at an entry level in the US?
