Welcome to the Illinois Society of Cytology

We are the voice of cytotechnologists in Illinois. Our members represent all aspects of the field, from smaller hospital settings to large commercial laboratories. We work with other related associations such as the CAP, ASCP, ASCT and ASC.

Why Become a Member?

We bring important and relevant information to our members through meetings and periodic newsletters. With the current upheaval in health care in general and the expanding technologies in cytology in particular, the Illinois Society of Cytology strives to provide our members with facts regarding relevant matters and legislation that affect each and every cytotechnologist.

We are a valuable resource to our members by providing continuing education and opportunities to network within the field through our Fall and Spring meetings. Members have a discounted price to hear the latest research relevant to cytology from nationally known speakers.

You need not be a resident in Illinois to become a member! The membership years begins in the fall and continues through the following spring. The membership fees are low and the returns are many.

Come join us!
