Third Year Orientation/GLIC

GLIC 1 (June)

Congratulations on making it through your first two-years of medical school!

The jump into the full-time clinical phase of your education, while exciting, can be challenging. IUSM works to provide you with every opportunity to succeed and this includes providing specific training during the mandatory Global Longitudinal Intersession Curriculum (GLIC) sessions during your third year.

The first of these (GLIC1) will start on June 13 of 2016 and run through June 15, 2016. GLIC1 is a mandatory three-day event that allows you to learn about and practice skills that will be useful to you as you start your clerkships. Attendance is required at the GLIC and Intersession even if you have vacation as your first rotation.

Between now and then there are several things that will require your attention, besides taking USMLE Step 1.

Health Requirements

In preparation for the beginning of your clinical training, please check your copy of the immunization forms that you provided prior to matriculation to make sure your health records are complete, as some of you may have forgotten to submit follow-up information (such as proof of second and/or third Hepatitis B immunizations).

For more in-depth information on these requirements, please visit this webpage and ensure you are up to date.

You may access your student health records online using the new IUPUI Campus Health Online Portal. Please go to and click on the "Access the portal here" link in the middle of the page. If you are not "web-enabled" to access the link, please email to request to be "web-enabled".

In addition to confirming that your immunization records are up-to-date, you must undergo annual TB Surveillance at IUPUI Campus Health or submit to Campus Health documentation of your annual TB surveillance (TB skin test, Interferon gamma release assay blood test or TB symptom questionnaire) done elsewhere by June 1st. This surveillance is required annually and must be dated after May 1, 2016 to be acceptable for the 2016-17 academic year. Please note that the date and time (am or pm noted, or military time) that the test is placed, the date and time (am or pm noted, or military time) that the test is read and the results in mm MUST be recorded on the form turned in to Campus Health. The test must be read within a 48-72 hour window. Your documentation must be on record with Campus Health in Indianapolis by June 1st. Students who fail to complete this requirement may be removed from rotations. Documentation of completion of health requirements should be submitted in either of the following ways:

Fax: 317-278-6929
If sent by email, include the following information in the Subject line: LAST name, FIRST name, IUSM Class of 2016 to insure that the information is tracked correctly.

Documentation may also be mailed to:

IUPUI Campus Health
1140 W. Michigan Blvd, Suite 100
Indianapolis, IN 46202

Universal Precautions Training

Universal Precautions annual training for health care workers at risk for blood borne pathogen exposures is mandated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). All IUSM medical students are required to complete both Universal Precautions and HIPAA (Health Information & Accountability Act) training once each year.

Universal Precautions and HIPAA annual certifications are now available in E-train. A link is available in Canvas under "IUSM Resources" from any IUSM Canvas course in addition to an instruction module on each "Class of" site under Required E-train instructions.

Fit Testing

Students are required to complete fit-testing for a TB (N95) respirator prior to each year of medical school. If you would like to be tested in Indianapolis, please schedule an appointment via the portal. You may also call Campus Health 317-274-1934 to schedule an appointment.

To avoid delaying the start of your year, please schedule your appointment right away.

Please refer to this page for more information about Fit Testing.
