Dr. Noelle Sinex has been an Associate Program Director since 2005. She grew up in Indiana, and is a graduate of IU School of Medicine and the IU internal medicine residency program where she also served as a Chief Resident. She works as a general internist in both ambulatory and hospital services at the Indianapolis VAMC. Dr. Sinex served as Women’s Health Medical Director for several years before taking on the role of Firm Chief for the “Green Team” resident and student teaching clinic. She remains active in women’s health, and she has a certification in transgender care and serves on the LGBTQ+ Advocacy committee. She has been a longtime champion for resident continuity clinics and medical education at the VAMC.
Dr. Sinex enjoys the balance of working with residents and students in clinic and on the wards. As an advisor, she appreciates the opportunity to mentor residents as they navigate career selection, interpret feedback and grow as physicians and leaders in the residency program and in life. As a resident, she experienced a paucity of women physicians as role models, and hopes that her career provides this for others. She strives to encourage a balance of educational excellence and personal resilience. She is particularly proud that the IU residency program strives for continuous and ongoing improvement and adaptation of new ideas driven primarily by input from residents and chief residents.
Dr. Sinex is married and has three daughters. She is an avid reader and sports fan, and, most recently, a fan of youth soccer and basketball
