About University of Ilinois College of Medicine
The University of Illinois College of Medicine, with campuses in Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, and Urbana, is one of the largest medical schools in the United States and is positioned to have a unique and significant impact on the nation’s health. The College’s state-wide presence affords our students a full spectrum of clinical rotations through state, federal, county, and community sites in both urban and rural settings. The Chicago campus is also one of few medical centers in the nation with a full complement of health science colleges – medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, pharmacy, applied health sciences, and social work – all on the same campus. Satellite locations of the colleges of pharmacy and nursing are at the Rockford and Peoria campuses, respectively.
The College's parent university, the University of Illinois at Chicago, is the city's only public research university (Carnegie R1 Classification). The College of Medicine has a profound impact on the provision of health care across Illinois. One in six physicians practicing in the state received the MD degree and/or completed postgraduate training through the College, as have 60% of the African-American and Latino physicians in Illinois and 70% of those in the Chicago metropolitan area.
