Indiana University School of Medicine - Evansville

The Indiana University School of Medicine - Evansville is a planned medical school and medical research center in the Evansville, Indiana region connected to the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM).

New interdisciplinary facility

In 2013, four higher education organizations jointly signed letters of intent to co-locate a new interdisciplinary academic health science education & research campus in the Evansville, Indiana region. The institution will be a partnership between Indiana University, the University of Evansville (UE), the University of Southern Indiana (USI), and Ivy Tech Community College. The new campus is expected to open in the fall of 2017.[1]

The interdisciplinary campus will include a 40,000 square foot simulation center with an advanced collaborative space. The facility will be a combination of immersive training space, research, and potential product development.

School of Medicine

The Evansville campus of IUSM is a regional branch of the school's main facility on the campus of Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). As the anchor of the new academic campus in Evansville, IUSM will offer all four years of medical school at the new location. The increase in class size and four year program will provide over 80 students by 2020.

The new Evansville campus will include expanded graduate medical education residencies through a consortium model with Deaconess Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, Memorial Hospital and Health Care, and Owensboro Health.

Partnership institutions

In addition to IUSM at the new facility, USI plans to focus on graduate level education and research with over 200 students attending new or existing courses at the new site by 2020. Programming includes Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, Master of Health Administration, Doctor of Occupational Therapy, Health Informatics Research Center and Doctor of Nursing Practice.

The University of Evansville intends to launch a new physician assistant program with 60 students and over 265 total health professions students enrolled by 2020.

Providing the largest footprint on the new campus will be Ivy Tech Community College Southwest. Ivy Tech will move its schools of Health Science and Nursing from the main campus location on First Avenue to the new medical education campus location. These schools serve over 1,100 students. Both existing and future undergraduate health care support programs are anticipated to bring 1400 students by 2020.
