Histotechnology at Barry University

    The BS in Clinical Biology with a specialization in Histotechnology provides intense training in histotechnology through a combination of lectures, hands-on laboratory experience and clinical internships. Barry University’s histotechnology program is one of only five programs of its kind in the United States accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).

    Preparing You for ASCP Certification

    Students graduating from the BS in Clinical Biology/Histotechnology specialization are eligible to sit for the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) certification examination.*

    The program is designed with the working professional in mind. Classes are held in the evenings and on weekends so students can continue to work while enrolled in the program.

    The program can be completed in as little as two years, including the internship.


    The program includes a five-month internship at clinical affiliate sites throughout South Florida. Internships are scheduled during the daytime hours in accordance with the schedule of the assigned clinical site. The internship provides practical hands-on experience that prepares the student for a career as a histotechnologist.


    Barry’s histotechnology program (Specialization within BS Clinical Biology) is one of only five NAACLS-accredited histotechnologist training programs in the United States.
