IU School of Medicine is the largest medical school in the country, with more than 25,000 alumni and 3,000 learners on nine campuses across the state. Its diverse faculty comprises 3,095 full-time members and 3,783 volunteer faculty responsible for training medical, graduate, and postgraduate students. IU School of Medicine is the only allopathic medical school in Indiana. IU School of Medicine is closely aligned with our health system partner, IU Health, which has twice earned a place on the US News and World Report Honor Roll. The shared vision of both institutions is to lead the transformation of healthcare through quality, innovation, and education to make Indiana one of the nation’s healthiest states. IU Health is among the top ten largest single-state nonprofit health systems in the United States, operating 16 hospitals statewide (a mix of urban, suburban, and rural facilities). This partnership enables the seamless integration of research findings into patient care. 
 
Indiana University School of Medicine physicians are members of IU Health Physicians, a multi-disciplinary group practice that is led and managed by the IU School of Medicine faculty. The school has moved more than 65 independent physician groups into the group practice to improve the delivery of care and strengthen the alignment of clinical, educational, and research missions. As a result, more Hoosiers have access to advanced care and the most promising therapies in the form of clinical research studies.

The ideal candidate will combine thoughtful leadership, creativity, and an entrepreneurial spirit to shape the future of cardiovascular care, education, and research.

We desire candidates who enhance our representational diversity, as well as those whose work contributes to equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty.
