Hospitals staffed by IU School of Medicine faculty and which provide residency training programs on the IU Medical Center campus include Wishard Memorial Hospital (a city-county hospital recently listed among the top 100 U.S. public hospitals), Roudebush VA Medical Center, Riley Hospital for Children and outpatient center at Indiana University Health, and Indiana University Health University Hospital.
Riley and IU hospitals separated from the Indiana University School of Medicine in 1997 to join Methodist Hospital of Indiana to form Clarian Health, now Indiana University Health. IU Health is committed to the school's mission of advancing education, research, and patient care. Located approximately two miles from IUMC, Methodist Hospital provides additional significant educational opportunities to IU students and residents.
The IU School of Nursing, the largest in the country, the IU School of Dentistry, and the IU School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences are also on the IUMC campus. These health science schools are part of the larger campus created by Indiana University and Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), which offers IU and Purdue undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
IU Health hospitals — Riley Hospital for Children, IU Hospital, and Methodist Hospital of Indiana — currently record approximately 1 million in- and outpatient visits per year. The affiliated hospitals — Wishard and Roudebush — together handle another 1 million patient visits each year. This enormous patient base provides a broad range of superb clinical educational opportunities. The hospitals host 76 residency and fellowship programs with over 1,000 residents and fellows, and provide clinical experiences in both inpatient and outpatient facilities to second- through fourth-year students. IUSM's nearly 800 teaching faculty staff all the hospitals. In addition, the hospitals host educational programs for nursing, dentistry, and allied health sciences students as well as Purdue University pharmacy doctoral students.
