To advance health for everyone through outstanding education, research, clinical care, and social responsibility.
The goal of the MD program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine (UICOM) is to educate exemplary physicians and physician scientists to serve the diverse populations and medical needs of the people of Illinois, the nation, and the global community.
At UICOM, we achieve this goal through an innovative and evolving curriculum that integrates the basic, clinical and social sciences, and through a learning environment that emphasizes self-directed, individualized, and experiential learning. We prepare our graduates to provide compassionate patient care; to demonstrate effective interprofessional collaboration, leadership, and advocacy in health care; to provide care for underserved urban and rural populations; and to translate research discoveries into clinical practice.
