Clinical partnerships with local physicians, clinics and hospitals provide students on the Fort Wayne campus with hands-on experiences.

Clinical Partners

Partnerships with universities and hospitals in the Fort Wayne area allow IU School of Medicine students at this campus to benefit from early clinical exposure and diagnostic skills practice. Third- and fourth-year students engage in clinical clerkship rotations at the Lutheran Hospital Network and Parkview Health Facilities, both of which are equipped with Level II Trauma centers and specialists who provide medical care for northeastern Indiana, southern Michigan and northwestern Ohio.

A variety of junior clerkships and senior electives as well as continuing medical education events for both students and practicing physicians are also offered through these clinical partners. Physicians, residents and hospital personnel are easily accessible to medical students and enthusiastically provide informal clinical training and advice on career planning.
