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.
