The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford is located on a 20-acre campus in Northern Illinois and shares space with the College of Pharmacy, the College of Nursing, Medical Biotechnology, and Public Health.
Starting in the M2 year, students are assigned to a primary care clinic where they begin working with patients in a clinical setting.
With only one residency program, the Rockford students regularly work directly alongside the faculty and often find themselves functioning as the first-assist during a surgery or a newborn delivery.
As a leader in addressing health disparities, Rockford has both the Rural Medicine Program (RMED) and the Underserved Pathway Program. Both programs use a supplemental curriculum to help students learn how to meet the needs of underserved populations.
Approximately 160 medical students call the Rockford campus home. M2 through M4 are housed on the campus.
The COM-UHP Rockford office supports approximately 30 URM medical students each year.
