The University of Illinois MD program is conducted at four geographic sites across Illinois: Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, and Urbana. The college offers a generalist curriculum whose goal is to graduate physicians who are well grounded in basic and clinical sciences, oriented and competent as beginning general physicians, capable of entering graduate training in either generalist specialties or subspecialties, and able to function in an ever changing health care environment. The college offers several special programs that allow students to combine medicine with doctoral degrees, business and public health, and independent study options to carry out in-depth studies of topics of their choosing.

The Chicago and Urbana campuses offer programs for M1–M4 students. The first-year basic science program at Urbana also serves students who will complete their last three years at Peoria or Rockford. All four campuses offer residency programs.

Students at all sites enjoy a superb scientific education and extensive clinical training. The college’s distinguished faculty and its groundbreaking research have earned it a reputation as one of the best schools for both undergraduate and graduate medical education.

The college selects applicants with the best combination of academic and extracurricular achievement, maturity, integrity, and motivation. Selection of students is based on an individualized evaluation of all available data and a personal interview. We consider the quality of work in all subject areas, breath of education, and experiences that demonstrate initiative and creativity.
