Excerpt from A Course in Normal Histology, Vol. 1: A Guide for Practical Instruction in Histology and Microscopic Anatomy
If this were the only object, it would suffice to assign a number of good specimens to the student, to discuss them thoroughly with him, and to let him reproduce them with the pencil on paper. But such is not the case. Our course of instruction has a secondary aim, equally important and a good deal more p’ractical, viz., to initiate the student in micro-technique, which latter is of the greatest importance for advanced study as well as general practical education. At the present day the microscope is probably the most important and necessary requisite of a medical instrumentarium. A thorough training is needed for handling it in the proper manner, and the basis of this training rests with the histologic course, at the end of which the student should be thoroughly familiar with the microscope and its use.
