2. Enumerate the prerequisite courses required for entry into a clinical internship in cytotechnology. Marshall University students are granted a BS degree in Cytotechnology after three years on campus and completion of the clinical year of training at Cabell Huntington Hospital's School of Cytotechnology program. Must have at least a 2.5 Gpa. Students not attending Marshall University must already have a degree, which includes 20 hours of biological sciences, 8 hours of chemistry, and 3 hours of math, when they come for the clinical year. 3. Name and define the types of molecular testing used to further delineate a diagnosis in both Gyn and Nongyn cytology. slighty invasive techniques, which include fine needle aspirations (FNA) and Wang needle biopsy. 4.
