Program Faculty Seminar

The 2010 Program Faculty Seminar offers an interactive menu of subjects that covers ways to deliver content in Cytotechnology and Cytopathology Programs, while also addressing scenarios that may help to guide the education and practice skills of future cytology students. The combined morning session will focus on “drill-down” strategies to implement regionalized cytotechnology and cytopathology education and training, present a plan to phase in an ASC central repository for cytology-based education materials, and explore configurations to achieve practical e-learning solutions in cytology. Each of the morning sessions allows plenty of time for Q+A, and general discussion by participants.
