The Medical Sciences Program in Bloomington is unique among the IU School of Medicine campuses in that it educates medical students seeking an MD as well as graduate and undergraduate students. Bloomington offers a Big 10 learning environment on an iconic campus.

With six major hospitals housing about 2000 beds, medical students in Evansville have access to physician educators in a range of medical specialties. An expanded residency program here will provide more than 100 new graduate medical education positions over the next few years.

The Fort Wayne campus offers clinical education in both rural and urban communities through two large hospital systems serving the region. A Student Research Fellowship Program offers med students nine weeks of summer research experience.

Students and faculty in Indianapolis benefit from close proximity to some of Indiana’s largest teaching hospitals and the Richard L. Roudebush Veterans Administration Medical Center. This campus offers medical education in the heart of one of the most progressive and economically healthy cities in the United States.

Muncie is the School’s only campus that’s located on hospital property, giving medical students a front-row four-year medical education with all the amenities that come with being located near the campus of Ball State University, a bustling college environment.

Located in a highly populated urban region just 25 miles from downtown Chicago, the Gary campus offers medical students unparalleled access to clinical care at 11 major teaching hospitals housing 2800 beds. An expanded residency program in Gary will accommodate more than 100 new graduate medical education positions.

IU School of Medicine-South Bend is located on the campus of Notre Dame, offering a rich campus life in a traditionally collegiate community. Students here gain clinical care experience at the Navari Student Outreach Clinic, and external funding for faculty research exceeds $2 million per year.

Centers and Institutes

Brain Rehabilitation, Advanced Imaging, and Neuroscience (BRAIN)

Over the past decade, a notable rise has occurred in research to address serious gaps in knowledge about acquired brain injury, including neuroimaging, neurogenetics, outcome measurement, and intervention studies to improve function. Yet brain injury researchers have not yet established solid links between these research agendas, a crucial element for advancing the evidence base to improve treatment outcomes.

The Brain Rehabilitation, Advanced Imaging, and Neuroscience Center seeks to fill these gaps in neuroscience by bringing together an interdisciplinary team of researchers to advance basic science and clinical knowledge to the next level of integration, translate the knowledge gained directly into clinical care for improved patient outcomes, and use the newly integrated knowledge to drive the leading edge of translational research.

This Center represents a unique collaboration among clinical and basic science researchers affiliated with the IU Neuroscience Center. Critical components of rigorous research in this area include the capacity to develop precision behavioral measurement tools and to identify replicable neurophysiologic markers that correlate with behavioral processes. The advanced imaging and genetic assessment capabilities of the IU Center for Neuroimaging and the IU School of Medicine Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics provide important resources for this research agenda. The newly opened InterFACE Center offers another important resource for the physiological and behavioral assessment of research participants using multiple assessment modalities.

A number of IUPUI and IU School of Medicine researchers contribute to the mission of this center, including faculty from the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics and Biomedical Engineering. The Center’s Executive Steering Committee consists of Flora Hammond, MD, James Malec, PhD, Andrew Saykin, PsyDThomas McAllister, MD, R. Ben Rodgers, MD, Brenna McDonald, PsyD, Dawn Neumann, PhD and Heather Cero, RN (Neurosurgical Nursing).
