The Department of Medicine is involved in graduate medical education primarily through its Internal Medicine Residency Program and the unique Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Program. The Internal Medicine Program consists of three tracks: primary care, research and preliminary medicine, and the program accepts 36 trainees for each track per academic year. The Medicine-Pediatrics Program accepts 14 trainees each academic year. These residency programs offer access to a large and diverse patient population through IU School of Medicine’s partnership with four Indianapolis hospitals, including the IU Health system.
In addition, IU School of Medicine sponsors a Transitional Year Residency Program for applicants who are unsure on a career path, and many fellowship programs are available for more focused training through the department’s 10 specialty divisions.
