Resident Ambassador Program

Each March, fourth-year medical students learn about the next chapter of their medical training during Match Day. On this day, students find out where they will do their residency training.

In the months following Match Day, many soon-to-be graduates prepare to move to a new city and start the next chapter of their careers. They do so with a degree of uncertainty. 

Alumni can play an important role by serving as a Resident Ambassador. 

The Resident Ambassador Program connects medical students leaving Indiana with physician alumni living in communities where they will do their residencies. As an ambassador, alumni connect with a student via e-mail or phone, providing useful insights about places to live and - when life returns to normal - restaurants and cultural activities in your community. An alum's knowledge of local hospitals and the medical community will also prove crucial.
