CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Histologic Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0923  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Histologic Technicians work under the supervision of a pathologist to prepare tissue specimens for diagnosis. They perform gross tissue preparation and laboratory procedures to show microscopic structure. Histologic Technicians solve problems, demonstrate ethics and patient confidentiality, and use chemical safety and universal precautions. Histologic Technicians work together with laboratory personnel to provide doctors with information for making a diagnosis. To work in most laboratory facilities, Histologic Technicians must be certified by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), 2100 W. Harrison Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60612-3798. This curriculum is intended for students who have been admitted to the joint LCC/Capital Area Career Center Histologic Technology Program.  Curriculum is approved by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Services (NAACLS), 410 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue, Suite 670, Chicago, Illinois, 60675-5634.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges. Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

This is a selective admission program. In order to be considered as a candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements beyond those required for admission to the College. Many of the courses for this program are open only to students officially admitted to the Histologic Technology Program.
