The Medical Transcription Certificate is 18 credit hours of class study. Students are trained to transcribe medical, surgical, radiology and pathology reports dictated by physicians.
Clinical laboratory science is aimed at quality performance of clinical laboratory procedures on biological samples from patients. The results of these procedures provide important patient data that aid the physician in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The clinical laboratory science curriculum offered at IU Southeast provides a broadly based background including specific chemistry, mathematics, and biological science requirements, as well as the opportunity to elect courses from the liberal arts. The curriculum of the clinical laboratory science program is fully accredited by the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation.
Students pursuing the BS in Clinical Lab Science will complete approximately two years of pre-professional coursework on the IU Southeast campus and must then apply to the professional (clinical) program through Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY. Non-Indiana University tuition is required for the professional hours at Bellarmine University, and the professional program is presented in a full-time, day format only.
Students interested in degrees in allied health science fields can take courses toward those degrees at IU Southeast. Students generally can take one to three years at IU Southeast and then must complete their degrees at another institution, such as the Indiana University Medical Center at Indianapolis.
