The Indiana University School of Medicine Arnett Family Medicine Residency program at Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital is a three-year program within the expansive IU School of Medicine Graduate Medical Education. Launched in 2018, the program facilitates learning across the continuum of care with its distinctive longitudinal curriculum model. As an unopposed, community-based program, family medicine residents are prepared to provide patient-centered care through multidisciplinary efforts that integrate comprehensive team-based care and population health approaches for individuals, families and the community.
Residents receive the opportunity to participate in both outpatient and inpatient learning as well as subspecialty tracks if desired. During the three years, most learning opportunities occur on a one-on-one basis with the attending physicians. As residents rotate through their curriculum rotations, they have the unique opportunity to help develop and shape the residency program through routine feedback with faculty and program administration.
While being an Indiana University School of Medicine residency site in a community setting outside of Indianapolis has created autonomy during the program's development, being part of a large, nationally recognized medical school has provided us with guidance and all the resources to help during our growth.
