Official Calendar

Create an IU Group Email Account

  • Creating a group email account for official student organizations and committees is an easy way for multiple members to manage group communications and respond to inquiries. Additionally, creating an official group account with IU makes it easy to pass along the login information to new leadership, particularly when student leaders graduate. Request an IU group email account. NOTE: Make sure to request an account.

Social Media

  • As a representative of the school, be sure to maintain a high level of professionalism and be in compliance with HIPAA regulations on your personal or group accounts.
  • Want to share information on IU School of Medicine’s official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIN or Youtube pages? Contact Whitney Walker.

Print Flyers

  • Print flyers and signs can be an effective way to communicate with classmates. There are many places on each campus to hang print flyers. Be sure to comply with your campus’ posting rules.


  • MedTV is a communications mechanism on many IU School of Medicine’s campuses. Contact Whitney Walker to share information on MedTV.

SIG Communications Lists

  • Work with The Den to manage lists of your members. You may send emails directly to your members or reach the whole student body through the MD Student Newsletter.
