CAAHEP logoDaemen College has partnered with Buffalo's  Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center , a hospital specializing in cancer care and one of the first National Cancer Institutes (NCI) designated “Comprehensive Cancer Center” since 1974, to offer a combined Bachelor's degree in Biology linked to a Master’s degree in Cytotechnology in a 4+1 BS/MS degree curriculum.

Cytotechnology Program Overview

Students will complete the BS in Biology at Daemen College (previously NYSED approved) and then participate in specialized coursework at Roswell in cytotechnology for 12 months. At the end of this five-year program, students are awarded a master's degree from Daemen College in cytotechnology and are eligible to take the national certification exam given by the Board of Registry of the American Society for Clinical Pathology. The Daemen College and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center Cytotechnology Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Cytotechnology Programs Review Committee (CPRC).

Students pursuing the cytotechnology degree program will take the necessary science electives and engage in an undergraduate research project focusing on molecular biology, immunology, and histology at Daemen College in order to prepare them for coursework at Roswell.
