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

Program Overview

CAAHEP logoStudents will complete the BS in Biology at Daemen College (previously NYSED approved) and then participate in specialized coursework at RPCI in Cytotechnology for 12 months. At the end of this five-year program, students are awarded a Masters 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 Cancer Institute 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 RPCI.
