WSLH talk: Cytotechnology program now affiliated with genetics dept. – Dec. 14

Cytotechnology education evolution: Not just pap smears anymore

For decades students in the WSLH School of Cytotechnology have learned using microscopes to evaluate the size, shape and color of both the nucleus and cytoplasm in almost every cell in the body to determine if there are abnormalities, such as cancer. As the program now becomes affiliated with the UW-Madison Genetics Department, the focus is shifting to prepare students to blend the clinical applications of cell morphology and molecular diagnostics. Join School Manager Michele Smith and Cytogenetics Lab Co-Director Dr. Jennifer Laffin as they explain these exciting changes.
