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.
