This one-year, full-time program begins in September of each year. It includes an instructional portion and pathology laboratory exposure. The practicum consists of hospital-based rotations supplemented with informal classroom education.
The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) has established national standards for histotechnology training programs. The standards include both didactic course work and clinical experiences necessary to properly educate a histotechnologist. The Master of Science in Histotechnology program at Drexel University College of Medicine is accredited by NAACLS.
