I was asked my PA to post this message on the histonet concerning the
pathologists assistant question.

There is a Path. Asst. training program at the University of Maryland in
Baltimore.  It is a MS level program and will take 2 (two) full years to
complete.  Info on training programs, a definition of a Path. Asst. and
other topics can be found on the AAPA web site at:

Currently there is no national certification process, although this is in
development.  The AAPA administers a Membership Exam for election to Fellow
Membership.  This standard is frequently cited by employers.

Chair, AAPA Board of Trustees
