As the largest medical school in the United States, Indiana University School of Medicine bears great responsibility for the future of health care in Indiana, throughout the country and around the world. By all measures, the school made important progress during the 2018-19 academic year, which saw record research funding and the introduction of innovative new education programs.

The IU School of Medicine Annual Report celebrates those accomplishments and chronicles how the school’s faculty, staff and learners are improving lives.

Highlights from the Annual Report include:

Innovating in Education

IU School of Medicine launched Scholarly Concentrations, a program providing medical students the opportunity to engage in scholarly activity beyond the standard curriculum, without adding time or expense to their medical education. Scholarly Concentrations draw upon the expertise of faculty statewide to explore topics such as Ethics, Equity and Justice; Care of Hispanic/Latino Patients; Health Information Technology; and more.

Leading through Research

IU School of Medicine secured nearly $150 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health in federal fiscal year 2018—up 10 percent over the previous year and 54 percent over the past five years. The school brought in more than $361 million in research funding from all sources during the 2018-19 academic year.

Expanding Residencies

To address Indiana’s physician shortage, IU School of Medicine is engaged in residency expansion—particularly outside of Indianapolis—by partnering with hospital systems to increase the number of residency training programs around the state. In the past year, residency programs have been added in Lafayette, Jasper and Vincennes.

Healing and Caring

As IU School of Medicine strives to be true to its vision to “make Indiana one of the nation’s healthiest states,” it has set goals to improve Indiana’s Mental Health in America overall ranking, reduce infant and maternal mortality, improve cancer prevention and detection rates, and decrease cancer mortality rates.
