University of Illinois College of Medicine

The University of Illinois College of Medicine offers a four-year program leading to the MD degree at four different sites inIllinois: Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, and Urbana–Champaign. The College of Medicine, originally an independent institution, opened on September 26, 1882 as the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Chicago (P&S) with 100 students and a faculty of 30.

Five years later, the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois approved a contract of affiliation whereby the university would lease P&S as its Department of Medicine. The arrangement continued until 1912 when there was a nine-month hiatus in the affiliation due to a lack of legislative support. It was only after the faculty and alumni of P&S bought up all shares of the school's stock and presented them to the Board of Trustees as a gift that the school officially became the College of Medicine of the University of Illinois in March 1913.

The College of Medicine maintains an internationally renowned faculty of approximately 4,000 across the four sites. Various types of professional service are rendered by its physicians, such as primary care, specialty practice, research, teaching, preventative medicine and administration. Medical students have the opportunity to become familiar with several professional roles and to choose the role best-suited for their individual goals and abilities.
