2022 Advance Cytopathology Education: Reimagining Cytology

Celebrate Medical Laboratory Professional Week with a dynamic educational course designed to help enhance your knowledge and skills in advanced cytopathology practice.

Cytotechnologists across the country are experiencing a shift in professional practice. As the role of cytotechnologists continues to evolve, developing and enhancing new skills will be imperative to meet the growing demands of the filed. This is the very reason we developed the Advanced Cytopathology Education Program (ACE).

ACE will cover the current and future Cytopathology changes and developments with:

  • Highly comprehensive and customized educational sessions to enhance diagnostic techniques
  • Engaging and interactive educational strategies
  • A dynamic, world-renowned faculty
  • A professional and practice trends Q&A with cytology thought leaders

Target Audience

Primary audience: cytotechnologists, cytotechnology students, cytopathologists, pathology residents and cytopathology fellows

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate technologies available for telecytology.
  • Discuss challenging cases encountered.
  • Describe different techniques to perform touch preps & imprints
  • Learn how the use of cell blocks enhance patient care
