Best bet is to contact American Society for Clinical Pathology,
http://www.ascp.org and a very good immigration lawyer.

I came over here almost 20 years ago and it was a nightmare. ASCP did
not recognize any British qualifications and I had then been working in
pathology for 18+ years.

To all Histotechnologist State Side,

I am fully qualified in the UK in all aspect of the work in histology
with 8 years post UK Health Professional Council (HPC) Registration (2
years in General Pathology, 6 years in Pediatric Pathology). 

I was wondering if someone on the Histonet list has ever
sponsored/employed  a Histotechologist who trained in the UK and then
went to work in the US.  I am currently looking to relocate to the US
and would like to inquire as to how I can convert my UK HPC registration
into a US ASCP Certification, so that I may qualify to apply for
histotechnologist jobs in the US. 

Kind regards,
