Training Sites

Training occurs at two sites, the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UI Health) and the Jesse Brown Veterans Administration Medical Center, which are just a few blocks apart in the heart of Chicago. Both are modern facilities that provide a wide range of primary to tertiary care to an incredibly diverse patient population, the majority of whom are underserved, and time is split about equally between each site. The faculty and all conferences are fully integrated across both institutions. No matter where they rotate, residents are a part of a multidisciplinary team in a comfortable and collegial learning environment where faculty are committed to teaching. We pride ourselves on the down-to-earth, non-hierarchal, family-like atmosphere of our program, where residents have autonomy to make decisions while being supported by their colleagues at every level.

The University of Illinois Hospital was founded in 1882 to serve the healthcare needs of the people of Illinois. Over 600 primary care physicians and specialists provide high quality primary and referral care to patients from the city, state and around the world. Residents rotate on multiple general medicine and ICU teams, several inpatient specialty services including cardiology, hematology, oncology, hepatology, and sickle cell, as well as all sub-specialty consult services. A two-story hospital atrium was opened in 2023 to welcome patients and their families and ensure their healthcare experience is first-class.

Jesse Brown Hospital


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.
