Rapid On-Site Evaluation (ROSE) of Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology

The Advanced Cytopathology Education University (ACE U) is a joint initiative from ASC and the American Society for Clinical pathology (ASCP) through the ASC-ASCP Workgroup designed for cytotechnologists who wish to distinguish themselves in the field and provide evidence of training and experience to share with employers. The program guides participants through specific criteria to demonstrate knowledge and achievement in different advanced topics. The program requires participants to progressively build knowledge through participation in specific educational activities.

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.

Learning Objectives

  • Update skills in diagnostic cytopathology to refine the professional practices of both pathologists and cytotechnologists.
  • Learn the latest standards in cytology practice including updated terminology and recent advances in technology.
  • Review and understand the diagnostic criteria and differential diagnoses in Non-GYN cytology, including fine needle aspiration, from multiple organ systems.
