  • 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.
