Health Sciences

The Health Sciences division at Indian Hills is prepared to help you achieve your goal of a career in any of a wide range of health and human service fields. Whether you are just starting out or want to hone your skills to advance further in your career, the Health Sciences division can give you what you need to excel.

Hands-on clinicals and practicum experiences are distinguishing features of our programs, because ensuring our students are well-prepared for the workplace is our top priority. Our committment to excellence is demonstrated in that our graduates have traditionally been very successful when taking the licensure/certification examinations required for many health care positions.

We offer programs leading to an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, as well as Diploma and Certificate programs. With programs ranging in length from three weeks to two years, and some available online, as well as on campus, we provide options to fit your schedule.
