Learner Feedback

The School relies on learner feedback to continuously monitor and improve the learning environment—both to identify concerns in the learning environment as well as when IU School of Medicine is at its best. Several avenues are available for learner input, including course and clerkship evaluations, evaluations of individual instructors, the annual Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Graduation Questionnaire, and information submitted through the school’s Mistreatment Reporting Process.

To recognize exemplars of the learning environment is at its best and celebrate those who best model the Honor Code each and every day, IU School of Medicine encourages learners to nominate faculty, residents, fellows, other students and staff members of IU School of Medicine community for recognition on the Exemplar of Professionalism Honor Roll. Nominations are temporarily suspended to align the process and criteria with the newly revised Honor Code.
