The Indiana University Medical Center (IUMC) campus covers some 85 acres within one mile of the center of Indianapolis. About half of the first- and second-year classes are on the IUMC campus; the other studetnts are at one of other eight centers for medical education. The School of Medicine's enrollment in 2011-2012 consisted of 1,255 M.D. students, 234 Ph.D. students, 124 M.S. students,46 joint M.D./Ph.D. students, and 259 undergraduate students. In addition to opportunities at the centers for medical education, M.D. students may participate in clinical and elective rotations in physician offices and hospitals throughout the state and nation. Students may study or serve abroad during their medical school careers.

The School of Medicine includes several facilities on the IUMC campus, including Fesler Hall, VanNuys Medical Sciences Building, Indiana Cancer Pavilion, IU Cancer Research Institute, Research Institutes II and III, the Rotary Building, and Emerson Hall. The William H. Coleman Hospital, Robert W. Long Hospital, and the Willis D. Gatch Clinical Building have been renovated to provide research and administrative offices at IUSM. Approximately one mile east of the IUMC campus, along the historic canal, sits the Medical Information Science Building, the IU Health Pathology Building, the Radiology Education and Research Institute, and Fairbanks Hall.

Hospitals that are staffed by faculty and provide residency training programs include Wishard Memorial Hospital (a city-county hospital recently listed among the top 100 U.S. public hospitals), Roudebush VA Medical Center, Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University Hospital and Outpatient Center, and LaRue Carter Psychiatric Hospital (which is state owned and located about five minutes from campus). Riley and IU Hospital separated from the School of Medicine in 1997 to join Methodist Hospital of Indiana which are now part of IU Health. IU Health is committed to supporting the school's mission of advancing education, research, and patient care. Located approximately two miles from IUMC, Methodist Hospital provides additional significant educational opportunities to IU students and residents. The two "campuses" are linked by a people mover for the convenience of both staff and patients. Midway on the people mover is the new (2006) IU Health Pathology Building that houses the majority of hospital laboratories for Riley, IU and Methodist hospitals and also the educational programs in Clinical Laboratory Science, Cytotechnology, and Histotechnology.

IU Health's hospitals - Riley Hospital for Children, IU Hospital, and Methodist Hospital of Indiana - currently record approximately 1 million in- and out-patient visits per year. The affiliated hospitals - Wishard, Roudebush, and LaRue Carter - together handle another 1 million patient visits each year. This enormous patient base provides a broad range of superb clinical educational opportunities. The hospitals host 71 residency and fellowship programs with 992 residents and fellows and provide clinical experiences in both inpatient and outpatient facilities to second- through fourth-year students. IUSM's nearly 800 teaching faculty members staff all the hospitals. In addition, the hospitals host educational programs for nursing, dentistry, and health professions students as well as Purdue University pharmacy doctoral students.
