More than 400 laboratorians are employed by Indiana University Health: managers, medical technologists, lab assistants, phlebotomists and administrative and support staff with associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees.

Specialized pathologists provide pathology services and serve as medical directors. The pathologists are active scholars who conduct research and publish papers, books and journal articles. The staff and pathologists, along with the IU School of Medicine, assist with formal teaching programs, including the following:

  • School of Clinical Laboratory Sciences
  • School of Cytotechnology
  • School of Histotechnology

In cooperation with the IU School of Medicine, research laboratories are part of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and provide training ground for graduate work in pathology. Department research includes Alzheimer's Disease and other degenerative diseases, cancer biology, tissue injury and inflammation, and infectious disease. Other research laboratories on the IU and Methodist campuses contribute to the specialized testing capabilities of Indiana University Health.

The environments of academic and service excellence enables the Indiana University Health Pathology Laboratory to provide some of the most comprehensive laboratory and pathology services to the community and state.
