The House Staff Forum is led by residents and fellows to advocate for and promote a successful and productive clinical learning environment for all residents and fellows at IU School of Medicine.

House Staff Forum

The IU School of Medicine GME House Staff Forum strives to provide a forum for residents and fellows to communicate and exchange information on their educational and work environment, their programs, and other issues. The House Staff Forum allows residents and fellows to address concerns in a confidential and protected manner without fear of intimidation or retaliation. House Staff Forum representatives connect directly with leaders in IU School of Medicine and affiliated hospitals. In addition to meeting bimonthly to discuss the educational and work environment for GME programs at IU School of Medicine, House Staff Forum representatives conduct subcommittees and lead projects designed to improve the resident/fellow experience.

Current House Staff Forum focus areas:

  • Wellness

  • Affiliate Partnerships

  • Advocacy

  • Regional Training

In addition to sharing concerns or questions with their programs' House Staff Forum representative (see below for this year's Representative Roster), current residents and fellows are welcome to contact House Staff Forum Chair Signe Braafladt, MD.
