Student Interest Groups (SIGs) are registered organizations that are founded and led by students at Indiana University School of Medicine. The nature of SIGs is such that individuals may develop and found one based on any theme of interest to members of the medical student population. Our SIGs are divided into groups based on their topic.

Resources for Current SIG Leaders can be found here.

Not sure which specialties you want to explore? Sign up for medical specialty SIG clusters.

These clusters are groups of related medical specialty SIGs. Students interested in a particular area of medicine who do not know which specialty they are most interested in should join a cluster for more exposure. SIG clusters also increase SIG visibility at all campuses and create more mentoring and collaboration opportunities between SIGs.

About

The Spirit of Medicine SIG is a reading group – and much more! We are united by our goal of preserving human wholeness, or health. We have a broad interest; we consider the effects of illness and disability on well-being, but also the roles of social, spiritual, and cultural factors. We meet to discuss fundamental questions through the lens of literature: How do humans gain fulfillment? How do we suffer? What bearing do these issues have on us as human beings and future physicians? Above all, we enjoy discussing great works of fiction and non-fiction together over dinner in a friendly setting. All members of IU School of Medicine are welcome.
