About Our Programs

Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital is home to the largest graduate medical education teaching program in Indiana outside of Indianapolis. We offer family medicine, internal medicine, and transitional residency programs as well as a medical research department.

More than 50 physicians are currently receiving residency training at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital. Clinics staffed by family medicine and internal medicine residents provide low cost medical care for nearly 25,000 patient visits each year. Many of our residents also become involved with the local community through volunteer service.

In addition to clinically-focused experiences, academic excellence is encouraged and supported. Our residents and faculty publish many articles in peer-reviewed journals and regularly present posters and abstracts at regional and national meetings. Each year, a research symposium held at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital showcases original research and case studies created by our residents.

In 2009, our program was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for a five-year cycle, the maximum allowed.
