Make the Academic Health Science and Research facility a reality today. Our success lies in our collective hands making an investment of team work, collaboration, funding, and audacity to make the school a pillar for our state. For those that would like to help us expand medical education and research for Southwest Indiana, please take action. Let’s leave our great state the legacy of America’s new model for medical education delivery!
About the Project:
Indiana University, the University of Southern Indiana, the University of Evansville, and Ivy Tech Community College are working collaboratively to plan, occupy, and co-fund with the City of Evansville an Academic Health Science and Research facility in downtown Evansville.
The facility will co-locate, with the School of Medicine, various health sciences programs operated by the participating schools in addition to several new academic programs. Additional project partners are St. Mary’s Health System and Deaconess Health System in Evansville, Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes and Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper.
The project will facilitate inter-professional health sciences education; joint training of related health professions; and expand the number of medical resident training positions in the region. It is the first step in creating a statewide solution to build a pipeline of medical students ready to live and work in Indiana.
The four hospitals and four higher education institutions will work in partnership offering programs and training from associate degrees to advanced practice training for physicians and other healthcare and dental providers in the community. This transformative project will serve as a model for the state of Indiana.
There are many ways for the community to support the new health sciences complex proposed for Downtown Evansville.
