Progress Being Made on IU Medical School – Evansville

(IU School of Medicine Facebook)

Tomorrow the Indiana University Medical School-Evansville and its partners will meet at the Chamber of Commerce of Southwestern Indiana. They will sign a letter of intent to expand medical education programs that will be located at a proposed new medical school campus in Evansville.

A decision on the location of the new health and science research facility may be coming in February when the IU Board of Trustees meets. According to Dr. Steven Becker, the director of the Evansville IU Medical School, that February meeting should also provide more information about the cost and specific programs.

Dr. Becker says the goal of the project is to grow residency programs to keep doctors local.

The plan is to break ground on the site in 2015 with the campus opening in 2017.

USI, UE, IU, and Ivy Tech- have agreed to a shared campus.
