Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health flu-related visitor restrictions have been lifted. However, because babies, especially those who are ill or premature, are at higher risk of serious complications if they get the flu, visitation restrictions are still in place for all Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) until further notice.
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.
