In the Department of Pediatrics at IU School of Medicine, supporting a healthy work/life balance for residents is a priority. The department strives to support resident wellness through a number of avenues including annual retreats, program-sponsored social events, faculty mentorship, and much more. This medium-sized program includes residents that treat one another like friends and family. Indianapolis has the best of both worlds being a world-class city with a smaller-town feel that is both accessible and affordable.
Life in Indianapolis
Ranked nationally for its livability, Indianapolis is a fantastic city to explore and enjoy, and its remarkably low cost of living offers our residents and their families endless opportunities to do just that. Foodies and craft beer connoisseurs find themselves overwhelmed with thriving restaurant and craft beer scenes. Sports fanatics can experience the largest single-day sporting event in the world at the Indy 500 or take in the atmosphere while cheering on any one of many our professional sports teams, from the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers, to Indy Eleven soccer games, minor league baseball and hockey games. When it comes to music, Indy draws everything from national headliners to local indie acts. The city also offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation, from enjoying any of our many running and biking trails to kayaking at Eagle Creek Park to making the short trip to nearby Brown County to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The options for family fun include visiting the largest children’s museum in the world to enjoying a walk on Indy’s beautiful cultural trail or exploring any one of the city’s beautiful parks.
