Jesse Brown VA Medical Center
The Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Medical Center, located two blocks from UI Hospital, is a tertiary care facility. Faculty hold academic appointments at the UIC, and many are involved in various research projects ranging from molecular biology to outcomes research. The hospital has just under 200 beds and residents rotate on general medicine teams, in the ICU, and on subspecialty consult services.
The total number of visits in the Ambulatory Care Center is among the highest of all the VA facilities. Primary care services are divided into four practices and are based on the “continuity of care model”. Residents have a continuity clinic there and rotate through many of the various subspecialty clinics.
