Certificate in Medical Transcription
The Medical Transcription Certificate is 16 credit hours of class plus clinical application hours. Students are trained to transcribe medical, surgical, radiology and pathology reports dictated by physicians.
Certificate in Coding Specialist
Students take 18 credit hours of class study, plus two clinical application hours. Students are trained using ICD-9-CM and CPT in health care settings. With work experience, students will be ready to take the AHIMA Certified Coding Specialist Examination.
Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences
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. Many such students will be only a few courses short of an A.A. in Biology.
Any student who is interested in allied health science programs should a School of Natural Sciences Advisor for the most current information about the availability of courses and programs and the requirements for completing degrees.
The following are some programs which students may begin at IU Southeast:
- A.S. Health Information Technology – IUPUI
