Medical Student Opportunities


Indiana University School of Medicine Junior Clerkship in Family Medicine


We are pleased to be a Family Medicine Clerkship site for third-year medical students from the Indiana University School of Medicine. Students who are placed at our site are paired with one of our community preceptors for the month. Didactic sessions are taught once per week by faculty, residents, and various hospital staff. Interested students should contact the Indiana University Department of Family Medicine to be matched with our site.

Senior Electives


Senior students are encouraged to complete senior electives with Deaconess staff physicians in the areas of Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Pulmonary Medicine, Pediatrics, and Anesthesiology. Other electives are available so please feel free to ask about rotations of interest.

Housing is provided on campus in the Health Sciences Building. A tunnel connects this building with the hospital. A swimming pool, fitness center, and laundry facilities are located in the building. Meals are provided free of charge. Students are encouraged to attend daily noon conferences with the Family Medicine residents and Grand Rounds on Tuesday mornings, as time permits.
