A Message from our Associate Dean Heading link

Interest in international electives are at an all-time high and our Office is dedicated to cultivating a global network of medical schools and hospitals, which provide our students the opportunities to train in a foreign country, as well as admitting highly qualified medical students to participate in clinical electives at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. These enriching educational opportunities for medical students, both domestic and international, are embedded in our goal to nurture culturally competent physicians-in-training.

I wish you the very best of luck as you pursue your dream of becoming a well-trained, culturally-competent physician with international experience.
