Perhaps someone is thinking about CLIA for which the pathologist meets the requirements for "supervisor" because they do the diagnosing. Most facilities set their own requirements. which would most likely require an HT  (HTL preferred) and so many years experience, supervisory experience preferred. This allows for more flexibility in hiring. 

Hope this helps,

Hi Histonetters:

Our HR/QA team is struggling to understand exactly what the requirements
are for Histology Technicians/Technologists to become laboratory
supervisor. It is my understanding that the requirements are not exactly
the same as those for the traditional clinical lab. And until recently,
the regulations were vague regarding our field.

Right now, I am being told that to be supervisor requires a BA degree
and 6 years of experience subsequent to receiving that degree. I am not
sure that is accurate.

If anyone has any information they can share, I would greatly appreciate
