The flu season is off to an early and strong start. Flu activity has been reported as widespread in at least 46 states, including Indiana. Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is currently restricting visitors to protect patients and prevent further spreading. Learn more.
During their four-year curriculum, all IUSM medical students participate in pediatric training through a broad range of experiences at Riley at IU Health. Learners participate and assist as valuable members of our healthcare teams that provide primary care for children, focusing on growth and development, as well as wellness and prevention. Additionally, medical students have the opportunity to provide subspecialty care to gain experience with acute and chronic health conditions—from the most common to the rare and complex.
They work within all departments at IUSM and are encouraged to participate in pediatric education conferences and student interest groups. Students with career interests in pediatric fields receive advanced training at Riley at IU Health to prepare them for residency training.
