Through in class and on-line didactic coursework, student laboratories and clinical rotations and observations at various hospital laboratories and medical centers, students are immersed in the
theories and practices of gynecologic cytology, non-gynecologic cytologic, fine needle aspiration techniques, ancillary techniques and research methods. Students learn to prepare samples, microscopically evaluate, interpret and diagnose, correlate microscopic findings with clinical history, confer with pathologists and other members of the healthcare team, incorporate and interpret ancillary techniques such as molecular, FISH, flow cytometry, digital pathology and immunohistochemistry testing. Clinical rotations at various clinical sites regionally and around the country provide hands on laboratory experiences.
Example: Clinical Rotation and Observation in Molecular and FISH Lab- CellNetix Laboratory in Seattle, Washington
Opportunity for international clinical experience in CerviCusco Clinic, Cusco Peru.
