This program is specifically designed to provide additional training to individuals who previously graduated from cytotechnology programs which were not accredited by the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation (CAHEA). Cytotechnology Retraining graduates meet the eligibility requirements for cytotechnologists employed by laboratories that evaluate cytologic smears collected from patients in New York as well as for the American Society for Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) certification in cytotechnology. Training can be modified to meet the needs of inactive cytotechnologists who are required to update their theory and professional skills before reentering the job market. Retraining is offered on an individualized basis. For further information contact Dr. Cecilia Vallejo.
Additional continuing education seminars are offered on a periodic basis.
