RE: [Histonet] Histology schools

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

Try contacting the Indiana Univesity HT program. They have a 1 year training
program, where the people stay in the lab they are in, but are taught by
participating in teleconferences, emails, mailing slides in to IU, taking
tests administered by their supervisor (like you), and doing a lot of
studying on their own. They are NAACLS accredited HT program. They take
students from about 45 sites across the country. The program started every
August, if I remember correctly.

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.
