Certificate in Medical Transcription

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.

Certificate in Coding Technology

The Coding Technology Certificate is 18 credit hours of class study. Students are trained in ICD-9-CM, CPT, & HCPCS Coding for all health care settings. Upon completion of the certificate, students are eligible to sit for the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) Exam administered by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC). With additional onsite hospital training, students can sit for the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) exam administered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).  Work experience is strongly recommended prior to taking either of these exams.

Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science

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.

Other Pre-Allied Health Science Degree Programs

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.
