IMHO those who gross and embed should be those with the competency and
training to do it; it could be a Pathologists, he/she could delegate to a SR
or 'Junior Medic' that they have trained or it could be delegated to a BMS
(Histotech) who is qualified (Specialist Exam) and competent.

I have personally grossed skin biopsies, uterus, dead foals and budgies.
