The Indiana University School of Medicine is divided into nine campuses spread throughout the state of Indiana. Each campus has a unique culture and caters to a different learning style. Campus placement occurs in a combination lottery/preference system; incoming students submit a ranked list of their campus preferences to the IUSM administration, who then use a computerized lottery system to place each student at a campus. A secondary lottery then takes place for students who are unhappy with their campus placement, although it is impossible to guarantee placement at a specific campus.
The largest campus is IUSM-Indianapolis, with approximately 140 students per class. The remaining eight campuses generally host 20-30 students per class, and are referred to as "regional campuses." Students placed at a regional campus generally stay there for their first two years (the MS1 and MS2 years), then switch to IUSM-Indianapolis for their final two years (the MS3 and MS4 years). Students may also elect to remain at a regional campus during their MS3 and MS4 years.
To foster a sense of community among the separate campuses, IUSM has implemented a College and House System that pairs up regional campuses and sections of the IUSM-Indianapolis student body based on their locations.
