Histologic Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Some histologic technicians become laboratory supervisors. Others specialize in certain areas of histotechnology such as orthopedic implants or diseases of the lungs. Technicians who have more education and experience are more likely to be promoted. In the future, an associate's degree is likely to become the standard requirement for entering the field and being promoted. Returning to school and earning a bachelor's degree will also provide opportunities for advancement into other medical or business fields.
