The Chicago Medical School (CMS) is a community-based medical school that embraces interprofessional education as a core principle. CMS has been educating physician leaders who have distinguished themselves in their profession for over 100 years.
Our graduates achieve a high match rate in the specialty of their choice. Over 97 percent of the Chicago Medical School Class of 2014 matched into residency programs across the country. CMS graduates will be represented at some of the most prestigious residency programs in the nation, including Harvard, Brown, Yale, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Emory, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Vanderbilt, Stanford, University of Chicago and UCLA.
CMS endeavors to create an academic environment that values individuals who come from socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds who are underrepresented in medicine.
The medical school is embarking on an aggressive strategic expansion, with the development of regional campuses, a cutting edge curriculum and simulated learning environments to significantly enhance clinical education.
The School’s faculty recently voted to dissolve its existing clinical departments in favor of one single department of Clinical Sciences. This new department will collaboratively interface with another newly created department of Medical Education, Innovation and Humanities. Together, these two departments will lead the School towards a unique vision which will train students to be physician leaders, who innovate, adapt and discover, in an ever changing healthcare landscape.
To educate physicians to be leaders in an interprofessional environment, who are able to adapt, innovate and discover in an ever changing healthcare landscape.
Chicago Medical School graduates will be leaders in developing and delivering the healthcare of tomorrow.
