The Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago has a long tradition of providing thorough and comprehensive training in Medicine. Our goal is to prepare future internists and specialists for a wide range of career paths, including careers in academic medicine, primary care and subspecialty clinical practice. We do so with an eye toward the changing health care environment and the increasing demands upon physicians to be both evidence-based and humanistic in their approach to clinical decision-making. Our faculty of 210 is dedicated to training the best and the brightest.
