I don't know.  I was hoping that there is someone in the Histonet community that is familiar with this.

I haven't heard that one.   Do they mean present physically or present as in their office reading slides, but a phone call or page away?

Is anyone familiar with the new requirement effective January 1st, 2012 that states that Pathologists' Assistants can no longer teach residents unless a pathologist is present?
