IU School of Medicine’s Bloomington campus offers the same high quality medical education curriculum that’s available at all the school’s statewide campuses, which enables continuity of learning, teaching and community involvement.
Like other campuses outside Indianapolis, Bloomington offers smaller medical education class size. Close collaboration between students and faculty, and opportunities to become part of the local medical community, are other appealing attributes of the Bloomington campus.
Instruction in the basic sciences in Bloomington involves extensive clinical integration at IU-Health Bloomington Hospital, and the third-year clerkships at this campus are longitudinal, spanning the entire academic year. Students also have many opportunities to interact with the community through medical service-learning in Bloomington. For students who wish to pursue an interest in medical research may obtain a dual degree—either a MD/PhD or MD/MS degree.
