Carle Illinois College of Medicine, the world’s first engineering-based medical school, represents a new concept in the field of healthcare education.

Innovation is the cornerstone of our curriculum, with emphasis on human factors, design thinking, medical technologies, and entrepreneurship.

Unlike traditional medical education, Carle Illinois’ curriculum immerses students early in clinical, case-driven, problem-based active learning intended to instill passion and creativity for discovering innovative solutions to the world’s most difficult healthcare challenges.

Contact Jessica Breitbarth, Associate Dean of Advancement, Carle Illinois College of Medicine at 217-300-6939 or for more information.

Your gift will enable a new generation of physician-innovators and physician-leaders to revolutionize human health.
