Better health through research, education, and service

Our Commitment is Global

As the largest and one of the most diverse medical schools in the United States, UIC takes a leadership role in addressing global health issues. Our mission is to improve the health of populations around the world by training the next generation of global health leaders; by conducting collaborative, trans-disciplinary research that addresses critical global health threats; and by building the capacity of the University and its global health partners to respond to the complex health issues that challenge all.

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."
—Helen Keller
