    Indiana University School of Medicine Scholarly Concentrations Program Annual Report 2021
    (Indiana University School of Medicine, 2021) Indiana University School of Medicine; Wallach, Paul M.
    The Indiana University School of Medicine is confident that the curriculum prepares all future healers to transform health across the state and beyond. Many students come into medical school with varied interests related to medicine. Maybe they worked in an underserved rural clinic or still reflect on bioethics discussions from one of their favorite undergraduate courses. The Scholarly Concentrations Program offers medical students the opportunity to pursue their passions through coursework and scholarship in an academic setting that runs throughout medical school yet doesnot extend the time it takes to complete a medical degree.

    Medical School Without Walls: 50 Years of Regional Campuses at Indiana University School of Medicine
    (Wolters Kluwer, 2022-12) Wallach, Paul M.; Birnbaum, Deborah R.; Ryan, Elizabeth R.; Pieczko, Brandon T.; Hess, Jay L.
    The history of Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) dates to 1871, when Indiana Medical College entered into an affiliation with Indiana University in Bloomington to offer medical education. In 1971, the Indiana General Assembly passed a bill to create and fund a distributed model for medical education for which IUSM was responsible, an innovative approach to implementing a statewide medical education program. IUSM became one of the first U.S. medical schools to implement what is today known as a regional medical campus model. This regional medical campus system has permitted IUSM to expand enrollment based on national and local concerns about physician shortages, increase access to care locally, support expansion of graduate medical education, and provide opportunities for research and scholarship by faculty and students statewide. This effort was made possible by partnerships with other universities and health care systems across the state and the support of local community and state leaders. The model is a forward-thinking and cost-effective way to educate physicians for service in the state of Indiana and is applicable to others. This article highlights milestones in IUSM’s 50-year history of regional medical education, describes the development of the regional medical campus model, recognizes significant achievements over the years, shares lessons learned, and discusses considerations for the future of medical education.

    Celebrating the Legacy of the Institute of Psychiatric Research (IPR), and Moving Brain Research Forward
    (2022-06-22) Lahiri, Debomoy K.; Nurnberger, John I.
    The Institute for Psychiatric Research (IPR) at Indiana University (IU) School of Medicine was a free-standing four-story building on the main IUPUI campus (791 Union Drive) just east of Eskenazi Hospital's present location. It was built in 1955-56 by the State of Indiana to house the laboratories of neuroscience investigators operating under the leadership of the IU Department of Psychiatry. For nearly six decades IPR was the home of innovative research (primarily NIH-funded) in neurochemistry, electrophysiology, genetics, neuroanatomy, animal behavior, and molecular biology. For many years it was also the home of neuroscience education on the IUPUI campus. In 2014 the IPR building was demolished as part of the construction of Eskenazi hospital to replace the venerable Wishard hospital campus. IPR faculty relocated to the IU Neuroscience Building at 320 West 15th Street, where they now continue their work along with researchers at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute and other departments. Former IPR faculty Debomoy Lahiri and John Nurnberger have assembled a history of IPR along with illustrations of the building and the faculty and staff who worked there and contributed significantly to psychiatric research.
