Steps to apply to the Indiana University Internal Medicine Pediatrics residency program.

Applying to the Med-Peds Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in Internal Medicine-Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine. We are aware of the challenges you have faced in your medical education due to COVID-19 and recognize that you may not have been able to complete all the rotations you intended. Our standard procedure has always been to complete a holistic review of your application; although your clinical experiences may have differed from what you envisioned, our holistic approach will take these unique circumstances into account. Furthermore, we will not begin sending interview invitations until Tuesday, October 10th.

Graduates from an accredited medical school may submit their application through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). The Med-Peds program will only accept and review complete applications submitted in ERAS. Starting on September 29, 2023, we will begin reviewing applications received through ERAS, and the deadline to submit an application to our program is December 31, 2023. Our first interview day will be Monday, October 23rd. 

We will be following best practices and national guidelines, which means all our interview dates will be conducted 100% virtually. Applicants will not be able to schedule official visits to the institution with our program. This decision was not taken lightly, as you will not get a personal feel for our medical campus or interact in-person with our fantastic residents during your interviews. However, equity in the interview process for our applicants is top priority and we are modifying our interview day itinerary to offer you the best experience possible!

Our commitment to applicants during the interview season:

Our program is aware of the stressors associated with interview season and in an effort to alleviate applicant stress, we will not offer more interview invitations than available spots, nor will we rescind an invitation to interview with our program. Furthermore, Indiana University School of Medicine and the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency program are committed to diversity and inclusivity within our medical community, and will not discriminate against learners on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or gender identity, nationality, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, military service or other non-merit factors.
