The SIU School of Medicine’s mission is to assist people of central and southern Illinois in meeting their health care needs through education, patient care, research and service to the community. Based in Springfield and Carbondale, the school works closely with affiliated community hospitals and clinics throughout Illinois.

A key player in the development of a regional academic medical center, the school of Medicine has also become an international leader in medical education. The physician faculty provides tertiary medical care, including a full-range of services in several dozen specialty clinics. There are currently 293 Medical students, 330 Residents, 65 MEDPREP students, and 80 students in the Physician Assistant Program. 

The school’s research covers a wide range of basic and clinical sciences. The Simmons Cancer Institute and the Springfield Combined Laboratory Facility enable the School to conduct more research that will benefit the region. 

 

Your contribution to medical education and to improving opportunities for these future professionals is an investment in the health of our communities. We are thankful for your generosity.  Please see a list of our funding priorities below.
