Allied Health Sciences Overview
Welcome to the Indiana University Kokomo Division of Allied Health Sciences, a recoginized leader in allied health science education and clinical practice. The field of healthcare is rapidly growing and constantly in need of skilled healthcare professionals. For those considering a career in healthcare, our Allied Health Science programs may be an option. Established in 2002, the division is now home to three undergraduate degree programs and two certificate programs in various professional disciplines.
Degrees that may be completed at the Indiana University Kokomo campus are Associate of Science in Radiography, Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology and Bachleor of Health Sciences. All three degrees provide career opportunities and opportunities for future growth.
A unique feature of our BS, MIT (Medical Imaging Technology) program is that upon successful completion of the program, a student is certification eligible without requiring additional scan hours or exams post-graduation. This is termed primary pathway. Primary pathway is available to our IU Kokomo graduates in diagnostic Ultrasound, MRI, echocardiography and CT.
B.S. degree in Health Sciences is the campus's newest degree offering in the Division of Allied Health Sciences. It is a versatile degree for those individuals who want to have careers in health, nutrition or sports fitness, but do not have or desire a career as a health clinician.
In addition, two to three years of the undergraduate curricula for additional Allied Health Science professions such as Dental Hygiene and Paramedic Sciences can be completed at IU Kokomo, which then may be transferred to other IU campuses for degree completion. These additional professions may be found on our Allied Health Science web site.
The Bachelor of Applied Science is to provide students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science a pathway for completion of the baccalaureate degree. In addition, there are two proposed tracks that will allow students to do further study in an area, which will better prepare students for the work environment. In addition, students with a technical background may choose this degree as they can complete the first two years at a community College and transfer into this degree completion program. A student must have completed a two year Associate of Applied Science degree to be eligible for this degree completion program. The curriculum consists of 120 credit hours.
