Student Affairs

Welcome from the Associate Dean for Student Affairs & Medical Scholars Program

On behalf of all of us in the Student Affairs and Medical Scholars Program Office, I want to thank you for visiting our Student Affairs website. We pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest Student Affairs Offices in the country and we are dedicated to empowering our students to succeed. The University of Illinois College of Medicine is a unique and vibrant medical school. We have a number of important academic communities—Urban Health Program, Medical Scholars Program, Rural Medicine Programs, and more—housed here at our medical school. This diversity of backgrounds and goals makes for an exciting and engaging atmosphere.
