University of Illinois College of Medicine Accreditation


The MD degree program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine has been fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) since the inception of the LCME in 1942.  The College completed its latest Institutional Self-Study for re-accreditation in 2017 and then a survey team representing the LCME conducted its regular (every 8 years) site visit in April, 2018. The College received full accreditation and will have a limited survey visit in February, 2020.

The Chicago, Peoria, and Rockford campuses are each independently accredited as Sponsoring Institutions for graduate medical education by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.   The Chicago and Peoria campuses offer a full range of residency and fellowship programs in all major specialties.  The Rockford campus focuses on residency training in primary care, with three family medicine programs (two of them rural) and a hospice/palliative care fellowship.

The College of Medicine is also fully accredited by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education; the next renewal date will be in March 2022.  This accreditation applies to all campuses of the College, and ensures that all relevant intramural and extramurally-directed conferences and other educational activities sponsored by the College for practicing physicians are peer-reviewed and of the highest quality.
