Hi Lily! Thank you for your post.

The people who read GYN and nonGYN cytology in a Lab are cytotechnologists. In its simplest terms, these individuals are "screening" slides to look for cancer. This important job is unique in that as an individual, you have an impact on helping save lives by looking for the early signs of cancer, and of finding cancer early. There is information on the ASCP website for individuals who are considering a career in this field, http://asct.com/poc.html(external link), and on certification at http://ascp.org/Certification/CertifyingExaminations/cert_procedures/eligibility/ct.aspx.(external link) Information about training programs and salary information can be found at http://cytopathology.org/programs/programs.php?type=cytopathology.(external link) at

There are also physicians called pathologists who also read Gyn and nonGyn cytology in a lab...those with special training are called cytopathologists. Those individuals go through a medical school program, residency, and often fellowship training. Please reply back if you need any additional information.
