Why couldn't she? I have an MLT (taking her certification this year) and
she is far superior to many of the "old timers" who claim to be
histotechs but have absolutely no theoretical knowledge and are thus
hopeless when it comes to troubleshooting. This profession needs to take
the bull by the horns and change the outlook of histotechnology - it is
a biomedical scientific profession and the training and examinations
should reflect this. It is already lagging far behind MT's. The HT
examination is a joke, and the QIHC certification is not much better.

Now let the flaming begin!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had 3 or 4 MLT's over the years.  They were trained to do every
thing the HT's do.  They were hired with the stipulation that they got
their HT certification as well as having their MLT certification but
only because it was a requirement for all of us.  They have worked out

Can an MLT work in histology? She would be embedding, cutting, staining,

cover slipping, labeling, filing, requisitioning and setting up the 
gross. If possible we could have her trained to gross in anything that 
would not require "cutting", like GI biopsies.
