“ The histotechnology program has been an exciting addition to our allied health offerings. Northwestern Memorial Hospital approached Roosevelt University exclusively to work with them to design this program because of the difficulty in finding qualified employees in this field. As a result, our graduates field multiple employment offers after completion of their training.”
