Medical Student Support
At IU School of Medicine, students pursuing a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree progress through a demanding medical education curriculum that includes clinical training in tertiary care centers, community hospitals, ambulatory care settings, student-outreach clinics and physician offices. Many also take advantage of opportunities to participate in medical research and participate in campus and community programs. This level of engagement can take a toll on students physically, mentally and emotionally.
IU School of Medicine provides a wide range of student support services to ensure that students can access recreational facilities, personal counseling, healthcare, peer support groups and other critical resources to balance the intensity of medical training. The school also provides students with personalized mentoring and advising support as well as disability accommodations, financial support, advocacy and complaint handling, exam preparation and mock interviews to ensure their academic progress stays on track.
All centralized student services for the school operate from the Indianapolis location, and local access to support is available across all nine campuses.
