Pursuing a Fellowship

Graduates from the Internal Medicine Residency program at IU Health Ball Memorial are prepared to pursue a wide range of fellowships after training here. Approximately 20 percent of our residents choose to pursue subspecialty training. Residents have been quite successful in obtaining fellowships in all specialties at many prestigious institutions, including Indiana University, the Ohio State University, Duke University, Cleveland Clinic, University of Kentucky, University of Utah, University of Cincinnati and University of Washington, among others.

Our program will provide you with the clinical and academic background necessary for you to obtain the fellowship of your choice. Approximately one-third of the medical subspecialists in our community are graduates of the residency program. Many other graduates of our program have gone on to obtain faculty positions in university settings.
