Help us make a generational move

The next step in the evolution of IU School of Medicine is about to unfold in Indianapolis. 

A new center for medical education and research—where generations of Indiana healers will train and transformational medical discoveries will unfold—will soon rise north of downtown.

These future physicians and the breakthroughs we make will benefit countless patients. And we hope you join us in fulfilling that mission by investing in this state-of-the-art facility.

Join us in reshaping health

We are fortunate to have loyal donors who believe in our mission. They inspire and empower our work to educate skilled physicians and conduct research to revolutionize health.

Your gifts will help this mission take a critical step forward.

They can help create a supportive, state-of-the-art environment where many of Indiana’s future healers will train. And they can enable IU School of Medicine to offer talented researchers the best facilities to transform bold ideas into breakthrough treatments.

Together, we will take another step in allowing patients in Indiana and beyond to live longer and live better.

Leave your mark

We will recognize generous gifts through naming opportunities in IU School of Medicine’s new flagship building. To discuss how you can leave a lasting impact, contact Mark Notestine, senior associate dean for development and alumni relations.

  • Exam Rooms (12)

    $250,000 each

    An integral component of health science, modern exam rooms enable us to test clinical performance and competency in spaces that recreate the environment awaiting our students when they begin caring for patients. 

  • Learning Communities (12)

    $1 million each

    To make the nation’s largest medical school feel smaller, IU will organize students in 12 learning communities, each receiving support from an appointed faculty member. Each will have a designated space, serving as a home away from home where future physicians can study and relax.

  • Case Method Classrooms (8)

    $2 million each

    Spread through the first three floors of the building, these eight classrooms will be circular in shape, allowing everyone to see each other. Such spaces facilitate a collaborative environment where students begin applying foundational knowledge to find solutions to clinical problems. 

  • Surgical Skills Center

    $3 million

    Located on the second floor, the surgical skills center will offer cadaver-based training for students, residents, and fellows. Residents in surgery and emergency medicine will also have 24/7 access to the lab.

  • Tiered Lecture Halls (2)

    $3.5 million each

    Off the main atrium, each space can accommodate up to 200 students and be combined to house larger gatherings.

  • Innovation Library

    $4 million

    The library will do what libraries have traditionally done—link our students, faculty, and scientists with the latest in biomedical literature. But over its three floors, this library will include spaces for virtual reality, 3-D printing, and one-button video production.

  • Atrium

    $5 million

    As the centerpiece of the building, the sunlit atrium will rise through the first three floors of the academic building, serving as a social hub, a gathering place, and a welcoming center for guests. It’s well suited to host large events such as the White Coat ceremony and Match Day celebration.

  • Gross Anatomy Lab

    $5 million

    A staple of medical education, the anatomy lab will be situated on the second floor in a modern space with 25 bays for anatomical training. The lab will also have two flexible rooms, bone storage, cremation, and cold storage.

  • Clinical Learning Center

    $8 million

    Located on the third floor, the center will house exam rooms, simulation suites, virtual reality resources, telemedicine, and an open bay bed to replicate a hospital setting.
