Why train at IU School of Medicine?

Each year, over 400 residents and fellows continue their training in one of our graduate medical education (GME) programs. So many trainees choose IU School of Medicine because of our robust support of residents and fellows including:

  • Individual attention and mentorship
  • Opportunities to engage in basic, clinical and translational research
  • Non-clinical training in leadership, medical education, global health, health equity and more
  • Innovative care in diverse hospital affiliates across the state
  • Leadership roles that help shape the clinical learning environment

Committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice

Advancing culturally competent education, clinical care and research is a priority. Developing a culture in which all individuals within the medical school community at all nine campuses feel included, valued and respected is crucial. IU School of Medicine is committed to establishing an organizational culture in which differences—including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and other physical abilities and qualities—are present and highly valued.

Meaningful Mentorship

Integrating resident physicians into the local health care and wellness environment is central to the experience at IU School of Medicine, where networking opportunities and access to the academic mission of the organization complement the clinical skills gained as part of training. A mentoring program matches each resident with a faculty mentor who offers expertise and advice in the specialty area of focus. Residents also participate on professional committees to round out the experience and prepare for successful careers in medicine.

In addition, the Underrepresented in Medicine (URM) Mentor/Mentee Program is designed to enhance the experience of underrepresented residents and fellows—including first generation learners, learners from rural areas, and educationally or economically disadvantaged learners—to ensure that all future physicians are poised for successful careers regardless of ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or other personal attributes. The program engages residents and fellows with faculty committed to supporting the development of a diverse workforce in health care and offers a wide range of activities, social events, workshops and networking opportunities.

Expansive Medical Libraries

Several professional medical libraries are available to IU School of Medicine residents and fellows. Library services at the Ruth Lilly Medical Library include reference assistance, inter-library loans, and free training classes. The IU Health Medical Library is located in Methodist Hospital and is equipped with computers and office equipment for use by graduate medical education trainees.
