MD Anderson's reputation attracts experts in all fields to the institution; therefore, the faculty members possess an unparalleled level of knowledge and technical expertise.

One of the strongest resources of the Histotechnology Program, our faculty team combines enthusiasm for education with the practice of histologic techniques. All faculty members offer experience in research and teaching in addition to their technical and administrative abilities.

As supervisors of the laboratories through which students rotate, faculty members evaluate each student's progress. Enough personnel are scheduled for each diagnostic area to allow faculty ample time with students without affecting patient care.

The histologic professionals who train the students are well experienced in the field and are encouraged to attend appropriate workshops and seminars to enhance their techniques and teaching skills.
