Transition of Sponsorship - Important information regarding Internal Medicine Residency Program.

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in association with Carle Foundation Hospital. We are a university-affiliated, community-based program offering a world-class medical education and an inspiring residency experience.

During residency, you will learn from a wide variety of prominent physicians and a diverse range of patients because the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Urbana-Champaign provides training at three hospitals and their affiliated clinics, including a hospital designated as a Level I Trauma Center and ranked among America's 50 Best Hospitals, a hospital named a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital by Thomson Reuters, and a Veterans Administration hospital that provides health care services to veterans in central Illinois and western portions of Indiana.

You’ll be glad to know, our residents consistently succeed in passing national boards, gaining acceptance in highly competitive fellowships, and finding attractive hospital and clinical positions.

Residency is also a time when life-long relationships are created. Many residents graduate and remain in the community, developing strong bonds with the associated institutions and the residency program.

So come find out more, discover something outside of ordinary in Urbana-Champaign.

NOTE: Due to a high volume of inquiries, we are unable to review or comment on individual applicant inquires.
