Under the leadership of Jamie Dimond, MBA, the IU School of Medicine Office of Finance and Administrative Services delivers quality services in human resources, financial affairs, decision support, facilities management, research and compliance administration, information technology, process improvement, and internal communications to all faculty, staff and learners of IU School of Medicine, to improve the health and well-being of our global community through medical education, research and clinical care.
Building the future
IU remains the nation’s largest medical school, even before expanding enrollment in 2007. However, it has not built a new educational space in six decades. The school's new home in Indianapolis will be equipped with the classrooms, labs, technology, and community education spaces necessary to help future physicians learn and thrive.
When completed, the new building will sit southeast of 16th and Senate Avenue, easily visible from Interstate 65. It will also cozy up to Goodman Hall and the Neuroscience Research Building to the north and IU Health’s new hospital nearby to the east.
At more than 326,000 square feet, the building gives ample room for research to ease patients’ suffering, improve their quality of life, and help them live longer. IU School of Medicine's federal research support has doubled in recent years—but not the school's space. An 8-story research tower will provide faculty with room for collaboration and breakthroughs.
Recruiting and Retaining Talent
The IU School of Medicine Human Resources team leads talent acquisition and employee development across the school through its work in recruitment, onboarding, coaching and professional development. Additionally, the group works in concert with other university and IU Health leaders to support human capital strategies aligned with their respective missions.
To achieve its mission to advance health in the state of Indiana and beyond by promoting innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care, the Office of Administrative Services at IU School of Medicine ensures the fiscal integrity and welfare of the entire statewide campus community. By adhering to the highest standards of fiscal responsibility and operational efficiency, the school is able to meet its most ambitious objectives.
Aligning Resources with Business Intelligence
The school’s Business Intelligence team enables the use of data in support of decision support. In addition, the team supports strategic efforts through the use of process improvement and project management best practices to maximize operational efficiencies.
The Educational Operations Team supports strategic financial and operational topics and projects. Providing leadership to the dean’s office and the business staff at all nine statewide campuses, the team participates in the creation of policies, practices and procedures that enable the school to maximize educational resources.
