But perhaps the most important benefit of a faculty appointment with the College of Medicine is the professional recognition you receive as a physician who keeps current with medical advances, and who gives back by sharing expertise and helping to develop our future physicians. Many of our physicians say this is the real benefit to being on faculty with the U of I College of Medicine.
