[Fwd: [Histonet] Histology schools]


We are starting a histology school at UPMC hospitals in Pittsburgh, PA 
in January 2006 out of necessity in finding histologists. They have to 
have an associates and it is for 1 year. The only other school in PA is 
Conemaugh in Johnstown. We need to promote the field more, but who knows

Are there any Histology schools? Where do people learn how to do what we do? On the job training is too much for me anymore .I've trained about 8 now.  Besides, who wants to spend their (now required) A.S. in a histo lab? Honestly, some times I wonder if we've boxed ourselves into the worst situation. Anyone ELSE having trouble finding a histologist? Or is it an histologist, I never know.
