Program Accreditation

We regret to inform you that the UW Cytotechnology Program will be discontinued after the 2023-2024 academic year and will not be accepting students for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year. Please contact us at with any questions.

The Cytotechnology Program is fully accredited by the Council on Allied Health Education and Accreditation of the American Medical Association, in collaboration with the Cytotechnology Programs Review Committee of the American Society of Cytopathology.

As part of our accreditation requirements, the program has an Education Advisory Board (CEAB) in place to assure that the program meets the needs of the community. The board is comprised of: previous students; private and hospital-based laboratory leaders; the public; and current student(s). The goal is to maintain open lines of communication with people within the field of cytopathology as well as those who are recipients of the testing performed in the cytopathology laboratory by discussing needs, current issues, and future topics the impact patient communities.
