Re: Who does IHC?

From:Cheryl Powell

I don't know about the state of NY but here at my little hospital in Mich 
there are two of us that do immunos.  Our managers want everyone to learn 
everything too so we've arranged it that only HTL do immunos cause that's 
how the distinction is set for schooling.  HTs arn;t taught immuno or 
electron micro. or any moleculr path or muscle enz(I think?).  Not saying 
they couldn't understand it if taught, just that that's how large hospitals 
like Beaumont draw the line so we've followed suit.  Cheryl
