What is the typical salary of a histologist?


The field of histology is growing but the number of people entering the field is shrinking very rapidly.  Therefore the salary of histologists varies greatly.  A typical histologist fresh out of school with the ASCP (HT) certification will be hired at an hourly rate of 20.00-22.00.  This is the starting pay for someone living in New England.  After being employed in the field for 5 years the pay scale can also vary depending on what areas of histology a person has become proficient in, the more the better.  The average pay scale would be from $25.00 to $30.00 an hour.  After 10 consistent years in the field one will make between $30.00 to $50.00 an hour.  These figures will go up dramatically in the next ten years because, the median age for a histologist today is 55 years old.  This means that in 7-10 years 1/3 to 1/2 of the histology population will retire.  What do you think will happen when this takes place?  At this rate there will always be a shortage of histologists.  Last time I looked at this job market, there was 90 histology jobs within 50 miles of me.  If I call a recruiter today, then I could have a job tomorrow in most major cities across the country and maybe the world.

    tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or do a few of these comments come across
    like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I’d
    like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of all of all your social pages like your Facebook page,
