Indiana University School of Medicine—Evansville
Centrally located between St. Louis, Indianapolis, Louisville and Nashville—in the epicenter of health care delivery in the southwest region of Indiana—the Evansville campus of IU School of Medicine provides outstanding medical education and preventive-focused patient care. With six major hospitals serving approximately 2000 beds, medical students at this campus have a vast variety of medical training opportunities on one collaborative campus.
The faculty and staff at the Evansville campus are focused on developing a strong interdisciplinary team of scientists and clinicians working together to educate physicians and conduct innovative research in a scholarly environment as part of IU School of Medicine’s statewide medical education curriculum. This environment promotes patient-centered preventive medicine and emphasizes the scientific basis of healthy behavior at every stage throughout the four-year competency-based medical curriculum.
Expanding Medical Education
Soon, in addition to the MD education program at the Evansville campus, collaborative planning between IU School of Medicine and a consortium of four regional hospitals will establish residency programming here. With a proposed start date of 2017, the expanded program will accommodate more than 100 new graduate medical education positions in southern Indiana over the next several years.
The Evansville campus offers the highest level of local scholarship support of all the school’s campuses. More than 60 percent of students at this campus receive scholarships—an average of $200,000/year in total awards based on academic performance, financial need and donor intent.
Statewide Student Community
The College and House program is designed to connect IU School of Medicine students at different campuses during their four-year medical education experience to inspire a strong sense of community, peer support and a culture of wellness among medical students.
