Histologic Technology (A.S.)

Histology, medical terminology, histotechniques and anatomy and physiology.

The Associate in Science in Histologic Technology degree program is designed to train and educate competent, ethical, confident, entry-level clinical laboratory professionals in partnership with affiliated healthcare institutions through classroom and on-line learning. The histotechnologist plays an integral role in preparing tissue specimens for the microscopic diagnosis of disease. The program focuses on comprehension and mastery of knowledge in conjunction with clinical skill development.

Selected histologic technology courses are formatted for online delivery; therefore, computer skills with Internet access is a program requirement. Students may find it difficult to work during the practicum phase of the education (last two semesters) due to the number of required contact hours per week. Students will be expected to perform in a professional manner during the campus and practicum phases and must have excellent coordination skills.
