Histologist Duties

The histologist is required to work under the direction of laboratory technologists, physicians and other medical staff. On a daily basis, the histologist’s main duties will be to freeze, cut and analyze tissue samples in order to identify cell functions and detect any abnormalities. The primary goal of the histologist is to prepare slides for examination under a microscope, often dealing with plant, animal and human tissue samples. Aside from having a required knowledge of pathology, the histologist will also be asked to employ their skills with laboratory equipment, automated machines, staining techniques and the general policies and procedures of the hospital laboratory. A histologist should pay attention to detail, have good critical thinking skills and be able to communicate effectively.

Histologist Education Requirements

A prospective histologist must earn at least an associate’s degree from a technical college. It is recommended that the individual pursue a higher level of learning, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in medical technology or a related field. The prospective histologist must also participate in an internship or practicum, which can generally take one to two years, in order to familiarize themselves with lab technician equipment and gain familiarity with the day-to-day tasks at hand. Although histologists aren’t nationally required to be certified, many employers prefer certified histology technicians over those who aren’t certified. Prospective professionals can aim to earn qualifications through the American Society for Clinical Pathology. A degree and certification is required to be competitive and stay ahead of the market in this career path.

Histologist Job Market

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary for a histology technician can vary depending on location, experience and job description of the facility. Fortunately, there is a 16% growth projected for histologists, making it an opportune time to seek employment in this field. Through 2024, demand for this job is higher than the national average.
