Cytotechnologists

Job Description

Cytotechnologists examine cells from other sites, including lymph nodes, bladder and lungs. Cytotechnology professionals often work with a pathologist to determine whether cells show signs of precancerous lesions, infections and other malignancies.

Academic Requirements

Bachelor’s and master’s degrees in cytotechnology are most commonly available. Programs teach students how to analyze cell patterns and structures to determine what is normal and what is abnormal. Graduate cytotechnology degree programs develop a student’s research and leadership skills and prepare graduates to working in education, supervisory and management careers.
