History of Medicine SIG


The History of Medicine Student Interest Group acts as a magnifying glass examining very closely the outstanding actors, inventions, and misadventures of this uncommon field. The group stands to support the preordained and traditional medical curriculum by providing context and placement of our current understanding in the scheme of past history. In this way, the goal of the group is to cement a sense of self-reflection, lifelong learning, professionalism, and scientific knowledge in students during that impressionable time.

Integrative Medicine SIG

Integrative Medicine combines contemporary western medicine with complementary and alternative medicine with the intent to treat patients more completely and effectively.  The beauty of Integrative Medicine is the ability of interested physicians in any field of medicine to incorporate some aspect of it into his or her practice.  The goal of the Integrative Medicine SIG (IgSIG) is for students to explore different elements of Integrative Medicine that may appeal to them in order to better implement those elements into their future practice in any field of medicine. Meetings will include guest speakers as well as hands-on demonstrations and will largely be created based on students’ interests and suggestions.

Medical Missions SIG


Who we are

We are a group of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and medical students from the Indiana University School of Medicine / Clarian Network who share a common belief that access to healthcare and healthcare education should not be contingent on where an individual was born.

Our mission

To provide health care to those without access both in the US and abroad, to

establish a lasting presence in those communities and through acts of service, educate future budding leaders of international medicine.

Our plan

To send medical staff, supplies, and students, under the direction and guidance of Dr David Matthews, chief of surgery at the VA of Indianapolis and Dr. Eric Wiebke, Director of Surgery at Indiana University, to disadvantaged communities around the world. Our goal is to serve and establish rapport with the hospitals and patients in those areas. Through workshops, training sessions, and fundraisers, we will prepare each medical team for its mission. As an organization we plan to serve as a hub for the medical staff and students, providing them with the necessary resources, both technical and monetary, to travel to underprivileged areas. Individually each of us will work either in the background to make the mission possible for other students or in the forefront on the medical team traveling to the mission site.
