Continuing Education for Cytotechnologists
Welcome to the Continuing Education Home Page of the Australian Society of Cytology. This section has been compiled to improve the professional and educational standards of members working in the field of diagnostic cytology.
The Australian Society of Cytology was established in 1969 and is the sole national body whose activities are primarily directed at enhancing diagnostic cytology. The primary objectives of the Society are to foster an interest in the training, status and conditions of employment of cytologists within the Commonwealth of Australia, to achieve uniformity in the interpretation and reporting of cytological findings, and to advance the knowledge and standards of clinical, diagnostic and general cytology by means of seminars, lectures, case conferences and other activities.
The membership of the Society is approximately 800 of which 500 are non-medical or associate cytotechnologists and 300 are medical members. Since the inaugural meeting of the Society, which was held in Perth in 1970, the Society has been actively involved in advancing the education of members. The Society sponsors Annual Scientific meeting where members can update their skills in cytology by attending lectures and workshops presented by international and national experts in the field. A quarterly newsletter (Cytoletter) is published by the Society for its members and includes scientific material and information on branch and national activities, and provides a forum for interchange of information between members. The Society has established a qualification for cytotechnologists: the Certificate of Cytotechnology of the Australian Society of Cytology CT(ASC), and this examination has been held annually since 1975.
