Histotechnicians prepare thin sections of human, animal and plant tissue for microscopic examination. The Mt. SAC Histotechnician Training Program is intended to prepare students for entry level employment as histotechnicians in clinical, veterinary, forensic, marine biology, and research laboratories. It also serves as a pathway for career advancement in specialized areas in the histotechnology profession.
Mt. San Antonio College offers an Associate of Science Degree in Histotechnology. This program will improve the training of entry level histotechnicians, thereby helping the California histology industry which currently experiences difficulty in finding qualified histotechnicians.
