New cytology portfolios

Two new cytology portfolios in cervical and diagnostic cytology have been announced.

They have evolved from the previous combined version, following an IBMS Cytology Advisory Panel review. Additional elements have been added to both fields to reflect the expansion of expected knowledge now required. 

This can be seen most noticeably within the diagnostic cytology version.

Individuals successfully completing one of the new cytology portfolios will be awarded a Specialist Diploma in either Cervical or Diagnostic Cytology. 

For the small number of individuals who continue to work in laboratories that provide both cervical and diagnostic services, there is the option to complete both portfolios at the same time or separately and then to receive two separate Specialist Diploma awards, if they are assessed to have met the required standards within each portfolio.
