The masters level graduate programs of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine offer considerable flexibility to accommodate students with various backgrounds and career interests.
- M.S laboratory science
- M.S experimental pathology
- M.S pathologists' assistant
The laboratory science and experimental pathology tracks are research-based master's programs while the pathologists' assistant track is a non-research based program designed for educating pathologists' assistants.
A research-based Ph.D. program is offered. The route for entry into PhD studies is through the Indiana University School of Medicine BioMedical Gateway (IBMG) program. This is a gateway into all of the Indiana University School of Medicine Graduate Division PhD programs. Admitted students take a common curriculum of didactic courses and rotate in various research laboratories. Selection of a research laboratory at the end of the first academic year determines the student's degree department.
For IBMG information visit http://grad.medicine.iu.edu/degree-programs/ibmg. PhD studies may be combined with medical school in a program combining the MD and PhD degrees. Admission to the Indiana University School of Medicine is required for a combined MD/PhD.
