I probably should have given a bit more background on the question about
cutting your own sections. I am working with mainly med techs who are doing
IHC. A couple of them were asking me about taking the QIHC. When I looked at
the ASCP web site, I saw that the QIHC is open to med techs. I wasn't sure
about the cutting sections. When I took the QIHC I cut my own, but I'm an
HTL. I guess if the med techs want to take it, I need to teach them to cut.
It does raise an interesting question: if the QIHC is open to other
disciplines, should microtomy be required? I see both sides of the issue.

Thanks to everyone for their response.
