Communications Projects
We’re working closely with IU School of Medicine’s Office of Strategic Communications to launch several new platforms this year. Some projects include: statewide campus resource guides, student takeovers on the IUSM Instagram account (follow @iumedschool), IUSM student blogs, and this new weekly newsletter to (gradually) replace individual listerv emails. Have ideas or feedback? Contact Whitney Walker!

Peace and Reflection Room
The MS4 class has developed a Peace and Reflection Room in loving memory of Sarah Elsarrag. The Class of 2018 will be hosting an open house in the new Peace and Reflection Room Tuesday, March 6 from 4 – 6 pm in Gatch 600. RSVP now!

Interview Day
This year’s Interview Day will be held in April to allow all students the opportunity to apply for committee positions at a time that does not interfere with the Step 1 exam period. Details to come.

Y2Q Survey Update
Thank you to the MS2’s for filling out the Y2Q survey, we surpassed our goal by beating the national average! As a token of appreciation, the MSE office has offered to make a donation to the Class of 2020 Match Day and 2YS funds!

Spring MSC General Meeting Dates
January 24, February 21, and April 18 at 6:00 pm. Want to learn more about how you can be involved or make your voice heard? Contact MSC President Julie Bittar at

We hope to keep a consistent and organized stream of communication across the state, so be on the lookout for more school-wide updates. Good luck with your studies, rotations, and interviews!
