Graduate Medical Education (GME)

Our Mission

Educating and Training Residents and Fellows to meet the ever-evolving health needs of the state of Illinois, the nation, and the world is paramount to the mission of the University of Illinois Graduate Medical Education Program and Office. We strive to prepare future physicians of diverse backgrounds to serve the populace with expertise, integrity, and compassion, grounded in evidenced-based knowledge, skill, practice, and professionalism. We seek to impact and assure the viability, quality, and advancement of our healthcare system and network by instilling in our trainees the importance of life-long learning as a critical requirement for safe and evidence-based care of patients.

The Graduate Medical Education Office provides a structured environment that facilitates our educational programs' ability to assist our trainees in their personal and professional development, while fostering learning environments where our trainees can excel in clinical service, research, and teaching. All standards for our educational programs are grounded in the core competencies and milestones for each specialty articulated by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

In fulfilling our commitment to Graduate Medical Education, we have the support of the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois, Deans of the College of Medicine, university and hospital administrators, faculty of the College of Medicine, and the membership of the Graduate Medical Education Committee. All are committed to providing and advocating for the necessary educational, financial and human resources needed and required to support graduate medical education programs in a comprehensive manner here at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
