IUSM Overview

"Collaborative and friendly"

I was attracted to IUSM because of the incredible breadth of research conducted here. However, the School's greatest strength is the collaborative and friendly atmosphere that is represented in every department and division. I have outstanding colleagues who have been incredibly supportive and encouraging as I have grown my independent research program.
