The University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Medicine was the first in the country to design and offer an Innovation Track in Internal Medicine to its trainees.  This track offers opportunities through research collaborations across many schools on campus (Applied Health Sciences, Engineering, Law, Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, and Public Health) as well as numerous departments in the college of medicine. The track provides numerous mentors to position trainees at the intersection of fields of inquiry and stimulate the development of novel ideas, practices, and products.

ITIM Virtual Seminar

We invite you to view our virtual seminar on “Milli to Micro to Nano: An Ophthalmological Perspective of the Convergence of AI, Microelectronics and Clinical Medicine” presented by a special guest, Dimitri Azar, MD, MBA.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
