The Carle Illinois College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the first college of medicine in the world specifically designed at the intersection of engineering and medicine. We are redefining medical education to revolutionize health.

We will re-engineer the way health care is delivered, using technology to create powerful new relationships between doctors and their patients. A partnership between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Carle Health System, the college will integrate the university’s unparalleled assets in engineering, technology and supercomputing with Carle’s nationally recognized, comprehensive health care system.

We are driven by four key qualities that permeate our culture and result in a self-enhancing environment:


We show compassion for everyone we encounter—for patients, society and the world at large.


We are confident in our competency to prepare board- certified physicians who are also innovators who will revolutionize the delivery of health care.


Change doesn’t just happen. Through a unique blend of unwavering curiosity, determination and a giant leap into new ways of thinking, we will challenge the status quo.


We will develop unprecedented solutions to society’s most challenging health care delivery problems by collectively building on each other’s creative ideas.
