Cytogenetic Technologists

Advancement Prospects

Cytogenetic technologists with years of experience advance to become supervisors, responsible for overseeing the work of others. Those who work in larger laboratories and research facilities have more opportunities for management roles than those employed at smaller labs. Some leave the field to become educators or to open their own laboratories. A Ph.D. or M.D. is typically needed to direct a laboratory. Cytogenetic technologists can expand their employment options by getting advanced degrees.
