Clinical Partners

IU Health logo

IU Health is IU School of Medicine's primary clinical partner. IU Health is the state's largest and most comprehensive health care system with 16 hospitals across Indiana, including IU Health Methodist and University hospitals and Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, all of which are co-located with IU School of Medicine in downtown Indianapolis. This unique partnership enables IU School of Medicine's faculty physicians to seamlessly integrate research findings into patient care and to offer promising clinical research studies to patients close to home.

IU Health logo

IU School of Medicine physicians are members of IU Health Physicians, a multi-disciplinary group practice that is led and managed by IU School of Medicine faculty. The school has moved more than 65 independent physician groups into the group practice to improve delivery of care and strengthen the alignment of clinical, education and research missions. As a result, more Hoosiers have access to advanced care and the most promising therapies in the form of clinical research studies.
