Fwd: New HT Program in So. Cal!

From:"Dr. Ian Montgomery." <ian.montgomery@bio.gla.ac.uk>

<html> Virginia,<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Lots to choose from so here are my personal favourites.<br> <br> Bloom & Fawcett: Concise Histology.<br> Don W. Fawcett 1997.<br> Chapman & Hall (<a href="http://www.thonson.com/" eudora="autourl">www.thonson.com</a>)<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Latest in the Bloom & Fawcett series. A classic.<br> <br> Histology. A text and atlas.<br> Ross, Romrell & Kaye. 1995<br> Williams & Wilkins<br> ISBN 0-683-07369-9<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>A good histology text with enough physiology adding interest for students. Price, student edition is very competitive.<br> <br> Introduction to functional Histology.<br> Telford & Bridgman 1995.<br> Harper Collins.<br> ISBN 0-06-501084-1<br>  <x-tab>       </x-tab>Good general text. Liberally sprinkled with tables which makes characteristics and comparisons easy to understand.<br> <br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>These are basic histology texts with electron micrographs illustrating key features. Can't recommend a routine ultrastructural text, but, if you manage to find an out of print copy, the one that sticks out is.<br> <br> Histology. A Text and Atlas.<br> J.A.G. Rhodin 1974.<br> Oxford University Press.<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Scholarly work with electron micrographs of the highest quality. I think it's a crime against microscopy that this text is now out of print.<br> <br> <br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Histotechnology, well, mmmm. The two text that every lab should have are:<br> <br> Theory & Practice of Histological Technique.<br> JD Bancroft.<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>A no nonsense lab manual.<br> <br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Sorry for the blushes John, but your one of the golden boys.<br> Histological & Histochemical Methods.<br> Theory & Practice.<br> J.A. Kiernan. 1999.<br> Butterworth Heinemann<br> ISBN 0-7506-3106-6<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Apart from its use as a reliable lab manual this is the one histotechnique text that you can actually browse. Bit of spare time, want to broaden your knowledge of the subject, then read this book. I find it filled with information, all referenced, that you can then follow-up. A benchmark text.<br> <br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Finally, the Royal Microscopical Society, MICROSCOPY HANDBOOK SERIES. Small paperback texts on a particular aspect of Histotechnology, written by an expert in the field. Everyone a gem. Bios Scientific publishers. <br> <br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Amazon.com will probably have these texts or know where they can be found.<br> Ian. <br>   <br> <blockquote type=cite class=cite cite>Date: Mon, 13 Nov 2000 09:56:15 -0500 (EST)<br> From: Pascoe4554@aol.com<br> Subject: New HT Program in So. Cal!<br> To: histonet@pathology.swmed.edu<br> <br> Hello Everyone, I am new to the histonet (and learning e-mail-please forgive <br> ingorance on netiquete (SP?).  My name is Virginia Pascoe and I represent Mt. <br> San Antonio Community College in Walnut, California.  We are about 30 miles <br> east of Los Angeles.  We have developed an AS Degree Program for Histologic <br> Technician training under the guidance of NSH, NSF, CSH and a group of top <br> notch industry advisors.  Our first cohort of students will begin in August, <br> 2001 and we are now recruiting!  Contact me!  Needless to say we are <br> extremely proud to make this announcement, exciting and a little nervous <br> about this undertaking.<br> Before I go on, I must apologize to someone on the Histonet who emailed me an <br> inquiry about this program.  I am sorry, tried to save your message until I <br> could respond and it is now gone.  Please reply to me so that we can <br> communicate regarding program details!<br> To all of you experienced histotechs (HTs and HTLs) I would like to pose some <br> questions to aid us in completion of this program's development:<br> 1.  We have reviewed some textbooks for histology, histotechniques, <br> histochemistry and immunohistochemistry (latter 2 form 1 course)  What ideas <br> do you have for appropriate textbooks for these course?  How about an <br> introductory course?  General Lab Basics?<br> 2.  What would you recommend for criteria for admission of students to the <br> program? General program prerequisites are set since this is an AS degree <br> program.<br> Thank you for your assistance.  Virginia Pascoe; pascoe4554@aol.com; <br> vpascoe@mtsac.edu, (909) 594-5611 ext 4218.  Thanks!</blockquote> <x-sigsep><p></x-sigsep> <font color="#0000FF">Dr. Ian Montgomery,<br> West Medical Building,<br> University of Glasgow,<br> Glasgow,<br> G12 8QQ.<br> Tel: 0141 339 8855.  Extn:6602.<br> Fax: 0141 330 2923<br> e-mail: ian.montgomery@bio.gla.ac.uk</font></html>
