Resident/Fellow Society

We believe strong advocacy is vital to improving the future of health care for Hoosiers. As up and coming leaders of health care on the front lines of medicine, residents and fellows have a unique perspective on patient care, physician well-being and our health system in general.

Translating residents’ and fellows’ insights into improvements in policy is essential to ensuring a better future for health care. With the rapid changes occurring in health care, it is imperative that our physicians in training become involved in the advocacy process. This will ensure that Indiana remains a favorable state for practicing medicine and that Hoosiers have access to quality physician-led care. We hope you share our goals and will help us in developing the next generation of physician leaders and advocates!
