There has never been a more exciting time to consider a career as a physician. The environment into which you will enter is dynamic, rapidly changing and open to innovation. In that light, you will want to select a medical school that will prepare you well to adapt to new health care settings where the foundations are only now being developed.
That school is Chicago Medical School. Our innovative, state-of-the-art curriculum will prepare you to practice as an essential member of a health care team. Knowing and applying your special skills as a physician and then implementing them side by side with nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, podiatrists, physical therapists and other members of a coordinated team of providers, will lend you a competitive edge both in your education and your practice unavailable at any other medical school in America.
A special strength of Chicago Medical School is the many teaching affiliations we have developed. You will have the opportunity to learn in both urban and suburban settings. You will rotate with many accomplished clinician educators and with a number of residencies in all specialties enhancing your post graduate residency options.
Conjoined with these opportunities is the ability to collaborate with our basic science faculty members and add to your career options the ability to participate in the science of medicine and excitement of research and discovery. Several of our basic science professors are authors of nationally known USMLE board review texts and make a special point of preparing our students well for these exams.
Chicago Medical School’s groundbreaking history as one of the first medical schools to embrace admissions standards based on character and merit without regard to race or sex continues to yield strong and diverse classes. I firmly embrace our openness to entertain candidates whose work lives have begun in other careers.
It is truly a gift to be able to enter into the profession of medicine. I welcome you to Chicago Medical School and the opportunity to assist in crafting your future as a physician.
