Fueling interdisciplinary education and research to prepare physicians to advance health care

Carle Illinois College of Medicine's Department of Biomedical and Translational Sciences leverages world-class teaching and expertise from across the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. Our goals: to prepare a new generation of physician innovators who are grounded not only in medical science and the biosciences, but also engineering principles, innovation and the humanities; to fuel research and innovation that reaches beyond the boundaries of any single discipline; to advance human health and the human condition.


Clinical Science Faculty members guide students through immersion in the clinical setting

Our partnerships with Carle Health and other clinical affiliates offer students in-depth clinical experiences in internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology. At Carle Illinois, clinical immersion begins earlier than at many medical schools.



Advanced electives and sub-internships ready students for residency

Carle Illinois students have an early opportunity to engage in advanced clinical electives in which they have a direct impact on patient care. Fourth-year students may choose from a wide range of sub-internships -- either locally or as an away rotation -- that prepares them for the residency experience.
