    This program is no longer accepting students and final class of students will complete the program May 2016.

    Our program is a "3+1" Bachelor of Science degree in cytotechnology. This innovative development will now allow us the ability to bestow upon our graduates this highly sought-out professional degree in just one year on the UMMC campus.  The initial class utilizing this format started in the summer term of 2012 with graduation taking place in May 2013.

    The program involves high levels of one-on-one interaction between the student and the faculty member. This is necessitated by the fact that cytotechnology is a learned visual skill utilizing the light microscope. Certainly our students will gain much in the way of needed didactic background, but the "rubber meets the road" when a student can apply what they've learned from books into the proper interpretation of a glass slide. We will limit the number of students that we accept to a number that will allow our faculty to provide each student with specialized and highly individualized training throughout.
