Indiana University School of MedicineThe School of Medicine is responsible for providing medical education within the state of Indiana. As part of a major university, it accepts and fulfills five crucial responsibilities:
In 1965 a School of Medicine faculty committee recommended the adoption of a comprehensive plan for medical education throughout the state of Indiana. The plan involved the use of regional facilities in addition to those of the Medical Center in Indianapolis. The plan would coordinate and utilize elective programs in community hospitals, preceptorships with practicing physicians, internship and residency programs, and continuing medical education programs throughout the state.
The plan also resulted in the formation, within existing educational institutions, of ‘‘centers for medical education’’ for teaching basic medical science courses to first-year medical students. In 1971 the General Assembly of the State of Indiana unanimously authorized legislation establishing the Indiana Statewide Medical Education System. This legislation mandated that the Indiana University School of Medicine be responsible for selection, admission, and assignment of students, for curricular development, and for evaluation and accreditation of the system. Further development of the Indiana Statewide Medical Education System was approved in the 1979 Indiana General Assembly. Approval for planning and funding for a second year of medical study at each of the centers for medical education was passed, and second-year students were first appointed to all centers except Fort Wayne in the fall 1980 semester. Funding for second-year students at the Fort Wayne campus began in fall 1990. The School of Medicine currently has eight centers for medical education, located in Bloomington, Evansville, Fort Wayne, Gary, Muncie, South Bend, Terre Haute, and West Lafayette.
The Indiana University Medical Center campus covers some 85 acres within one mile of the center of Indianapolis. Half of the first- and second-year classes are on the IUMC campus; the other half are at the centers for medical education. The School of Medicine’s enrollment in 2000–2001 consisted of nearly 1,100 M.D. students, 143 Ph.D. students, 115 M.S. students, and 38 M.D./Ph.D. students. In addition to opportunities at the centers for medical education, M.D. students may participate in clinical and elective rotations in physician offices and hospitals throughout the state and nation. Students may study or serve abroad during their medical school careers.
The IUMC campus includes Fesler Hall, Van Nuys Medical Sciences Building, Indiana Cancer Pavilion, IU Cancer Research Institute, the Rotary Building, and Emerson Hall. The William H. Coleman Hospital, Robert W. Long Hospital, and the Willis D. Gatch Clinical Building have been renovated to provide research and administrative offices at IUSM. The construction of a new research building began in the 2000–2001 academic year, and yet another was planned.
Hospitals that are staffed by faculty and provide residency training programs include: Wishard Memorial Hospital (a city–county hospital recently listed among the top 100 U.S. public hospitals), Roudebush VA Medical Center, Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University Hospital and Outpatient Center, and LaRue Carter Psychiatric Hospital (state owned—about five minutes from campus). Riley and IU hospital separated from the School of Medicine in 1997 to join Methodist Hospital of Indiana to form Clarian Health Partners. Clarian Health is committed to supporting the school’s mission of advancing education, research, and patient care. Located approximately two miles from IUMC, Methodist Hospital provides additional significant educational opportunities to IU students and residents.
Clarian Health’s hospitals—Riley Hospital for Children, IU Hospital, and Methodist Hospital of Indiana—currently record approximately one million in- and out-patient visits per year. The affiliated hospitals—Wishard, Roudebush, and LaRue Carter—together handle another one million patient visits each year. This enormous patient base provides a broad range of superb clinical educational opportunities. The hospitals host 30 residency programs with 929 residents and provide clinical experiences in both in-patient and outpatient facilities to second- through fourth-year students. IUSM’s nearly 800 teaching faculty staff all the hospitals. In addition, the hospitals host educational programs for nursing, dentistry, and allied health sciences students as well as Purdue University pharmacy doctoral students.
The School of Medicine now houses a number of undergraduate programs formerly offered by the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. For more information on those programs and course descriptions visit http://bulletin.iupui.edu/ahlt/
