  You can be an excellent histotech without the formal education, but it is
always beneficial to have a background in certain areas of science to
understand the chemistry of special stains, the biology and physiology of
disease, anatomy and cell biology ( now called molecular biology) and
immunology.  I would start off with some basic biology and chemistry
courses and go from there depending on your interests. You will be
surprised at how your interests may develop from there.  Don't think you
must take courses directed only towards histology.  You may actually find
you like other parts of science (or management) as well.  Good Luck.   Pat

I am an OJT certified Histologic Technician.  I am very proud of all that I
have learned and achieved.  However, I would also like to learn more of the
things that people with formal education in this field have learned.  Would
someone please tell me what courses I could attend at our local Junior
College that could help me to accomplish this.  I want to be the best
Histologic Technician that I can be.
