Training Sites

Continuity Clinic Sites

There are two family medicine centers, the Family Medicine Center at University Village and Mile Square Health Center. They both play an integral part in the training of our residents. Together, they provide the settings for residents during their three years of training. Their differences complement each other, providing a combination of training in both a predominately insured population and a primarily undeserved urban environment.

The Family Medicine Center at University Village

Located at 722 W. Maxwell Street, this center serves a diverse population, and sees largely working-age adults, students and their dependents. It provides an extensive array of services, including adult medicine; maternity care; women’s health; pediatrics; geriatrics; occupational medicine; sports medicine; wellness promotion; and disease prevention. Residents, attending physicians, family nurse practitioners; doctors of pharmacy, to deliver comprehensive family care. The Center sees over 40,000 patients annually in a modern and wired facility.  Visit the clinic’s webpage >>

Mile Square Health Center

Located one block from the University of Illinois Hospital, Mile Square, a federally qualified health center serves Chicago’s Near West Side, an economically challenged urban community. The population includes many families with young children, as well as a geriatric population with multiple chronic health needs. The team approach is also evident at Mile Square, where a variety of health care professionals work with the physicians to provide true community-oriented primary care. MSHC moved into a new state-of-the-art electronic facility in January 2014. Visit the clinic’s webpage >>

University of Illinois Hospital (UIH)

University of Illinois Hospital is a modern, 540 bed hospital dedicated in 1980. It is home to residencies in virtually every medical and surgical specialty. Family Medicine residents complete the majority of their rotations here. During the PGY1 level, on in-patient rotations, they participate fully & equally with their fellow residents from other departments. In the PGY1, PGY2, and PGY3 levels, our residents work on the Family Medicine inpatient services; patients here are admitted and managed by Family Medicine faculty and residents; other specialties serve mainly in the consultant role, thus modeling private practice.

Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs (JBVA) Medical Center

Located on the west side of campus, JBVA is a 435 bed medical center that serves as one of the University’s primary teaching sites for medical students, residents, and other health professions. Family Medicine residents spend about 12% of their rotations at JBVA, including Outpatient Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology, Medicine Intensive Care Unit, Dermatology, ENT and Ophthalmology. The residents also blend both UIC and VA for their Geriatrics and Behavioral Medicine rotations. Visit the JBVA Medical Center website >>
