Current Residents 2022-2023
Meet current Chief Resident Jessica Muldoon!
During my interview process I had an expansive excel sheet with columns of information that was important for me while choosing a program. My uppermost column was culture. I wanted to work somewhere that created an environment of learning, teamwork, and inclusion. The department is collegial not only in terms of faculty support, but the department as a whole from administrative staff to technical staff to research staff. This environment creates a strong sense of community and builds upon your interprofessional skills during training as a clinician.
Indiana University is able to provide a strong volume of anatomic and clinical specimens from hospitals across the state. As the tertiary cancer center we get not only interesting complex cases, but also the bread and butter of community practice. At our main campus we offer various subspecialties with generalized sign out at our county hospital Eskenazi and VA hospital. Our department offers many research opportunities from smaller projects to longitudinal projects to bench work. We have a beautiful lab building full of windows located on the scenic Indianapolis Canal with our hospital and hospital partners within one mile of the main lab.
Indianapolis is a “little, big city” where you are able to enjoy downtown life but can also have a comfortable commute if you live in the suburbs. Indianapolis offers affordable housing whether renting or purchasing. Residents vary from apartments within walking distance to purchasing homes in the suburbs. For social activities, residents head to Mass Ave, Fountain Square, and Broad Ripple to enjoy restaurants. We have state parks with walking trails, multiple indoor climbing facilities, and free gym memberships. Indianapolis is popular for families with our zoo, top rated children’s museum, and strong public library system.
I have found that Indiana is able to support their trainees in whatever their goals are; be it academics, community, or industry.
