The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Doctor of Medicine (MD) program is conducted on the Urbana Campus in the Carle Illinois College of Medicine. The college offers a professional, four-year MD degree program that integrates engineering concepts with the traditional pillars of medicine, namely the basic health sciences and clinical training, and prepares students for postgraduate medical education programs. This curriculum produces students who are trained and equipped to incorporate analytical and quantitative techniques, modeling and computation, innovation, and human systems approaches to advancing and delivering high quality healthcare. The curriculum emphasizes professional, compassionate, and ethical care and the utilization of team-based approaches to transform healthcare delivery and improve healthcare outcomes through the continuum of care: preventive medicine through acute care. In addition to required courses, elective rotations provide opportunities for students to explore specialized areas of interest. Students have the option to complete a research thesis that may lead to the award of an MD degree with High Honors. The educational program spans four (4) years. Students are exposed to extensive clinical training, professional development and scientific and engineering education through a case-driven active learning curriculum.

Admissions

The college selects applicants with the best combination of academic and extracurricular achievement, maturity, integrity, and motivation. Selection of students is based on an assessment of all available data and an evaluation of skills and aptitude. The quality of work in all subject areas is considered, with an emphasis on quantitative methods, breath of education, and experiences that demonstrate initiative, creativity and interest in compassionate patient care.
