One School, Nine Campuses Strong

A statewide system of engaging campus communities

Statewide Campus System

Among the many characteristics that set IU School of Medicine apart from other medical schools in the United States is its statewide campus system. With nine campuses located in some of Indiana’s most livable cities, IU School of Medicine offers a wide variety of working and learning environments to meet different styles, needs and interests.

Whether medical students are in the urban settings of Indianapolis, Evansville, Fort Wayne and Gary or pursuing the rural education track of Terre Haute or prefer the traditional college campus setting of Bloomington, South Bend, West Lafayette and Muncie, they benefit from the same high-quality MD curriculum—with the special amenities and opportunities of each location.


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.

Investing in Indiana Health through Statewide Medical Education

IU School of Medicine was a pioneer in the use of a multi-campus system to educate medical students. Yet the statewide footprint of IU School of Medicine isn’t just good for medical students and residents, it is important to the health of Hoosiers. Educating students outside of Indianapolis increases the likelihood they will put down roots in these communities and serve patients in every corner of the state. That is why IU School of Medicine is investing in its campuses to update facilities, increase student services and programs, provide clerkship opportunities outside of Indianapolis, and work in partnership with local hospitals to add residency training in these regions.
