There has been discussion regarding the removal of the practical exam. 
To me it has not been removed, but the responsibility has shifted to 
whomever signs off on the student. In the case of OJT, the pathologist 
has verified that this student can cut and stain. Of course what is 
acceptable to one pathologist may not be to another. Do they get tested 
in the art of troubleshooting...... As far as the schools go, they 
shouldn't be graduating anyone that can't cut, stain and troubleshoot. 
So I don't really see a problem with the absence of the practical. It is 
Friday somewhere.
