The Carle Illinois Difference
Together we will harness engineering and innovation to improve the human condition.
As the world’s first engineering-based college of medicine, we are leveraging advanced technology to train physician-innovators who will deliver better, more compassionate and accessible care to patients worldwide. Engaging creative minds in a case-driven, problem-based, active learning curriculum with early clinical immersion is just one way we’re setting a new bar for medical education.
