Cytotechnologists perform microscopic examinations of specially stained slides of human cells from sites throughout the body for the early diagnosis and treatment of disease.
UNMC’s cytotechnology program:
- is a leader in virtual microscopy (VM). Students have access to thousands of annotated images for studying from anywhere at any time, practicing their screening and interpretation skills inside and outside the classroom setting.
- is a leader in distance education, with three approved satellite sites: Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana, IL, University of California Davis Medical Center, and Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
- provides our students with the latest technology in the classroom. Each student desk is equipped with a touch screen computer monitor connected to the internet.
“The profession is very versatile and I love the daily challenge. The program at UNMC has far exceeded my expectations.” - N. Baker, Cytotechnology Class of 2014
