The Carle Illinois Model for Medical Education is the first in the world to integrate engineering principles in teaching medicine. Our approach infuses basic sciences, clinical sciences, engineering and innovation, and medical humanities into all four years.
Carle Illinois students propose their capstone innovations in the final phase of our curriculum. Leading a cross-disciplinary team, our students develop a new prototype or process that has the potential to change the practice of medicine and improve patient outcomes.
Carle Illinois students have the opportunity to develop their research in partnership with faculty members whose research interests cover a broad range of topics.
