Indiana University offers the Associate of Science in Histotechnology, the study of cellular structure and tissue anatomy of plants and animals. As members of a laboratory team, Histotechnicians and histotechnologists employ histologic technology to diagnose diseases, to conduct research, or to instruct others in the science. This program was designed to provide the nationwide health care community with individuals competent to conduct high-quality histologic procedures. The curriculum balances technical knowledge and clinical competence gained in the histology laboratory setting. Program faculty assist students in reaching their own professional goals by providing academic and occupational advisement.
