This intensive two-year program is composed of a didactic phase followed by directed clinical training at affiliated hospitals and laboratories. During the didactic phase, formal lectures, demonstrations and rotations through clinical laboratories provide experience in routine and specialized procedures.
Laboratory sessions are coordinated with lectures and cover the fundamentals of diagnostic laboratory procedures and are included in the didactic phase. The program maintains an extensive collection of reference books, microscopic slides and projection slides for use in lectures and independent study.
Students are expected to maintain high academic performance and display appropriate professional and ethical behavior during all phases of their education and training.
Bachelor of Science in Histotechnology
