According to American Society of Cytopathology (ASC), the number of schools offering cytotechnology programs peaked in 1995 and declined steadily over the next nine years during which 19 schools closed their cytotechnology programs. Among the schools included in these closures is the prestigious Johns Hopkins University Medical School, whose program closed due to lack of applications.  This brings the total number of program closures to one in every three cytotechnology programs since 1995.
