The Carle Illinois College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the world's first engineering-based medical school. Our curriculum is built at the intersection of engineering and medicine, with most courses designed by a team composed of a basic scientist, clinician, and engineer. The curriculum infuses basic sciences, clinical sciences, engineering and innovation, and medical humanities into all four years. We place a high value on patient-centered care, systems-based delivery, innovation and research, and early clinical exposure.
We envision a future where doctors provide more humanistic care for patients by leveraging engineering and advanced technology. A future where excellent health care is available to everyone who needs it no matter who they are or where they live.
