In 1970, a group of local physicians and community leaders founded the Peoria Medical School. Their goal was to train physicians who would remain in Peoria and central Illinois communities to practice medicine.
Fifty years later that vision has come to fruition as the medical school, now named the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP), prepares future physicians, provides clinical services, and conducts impactful research.
The current pandemic has forced us to postpone the class reunions and the 50th anniversary fall celebration. Please watch for updates.
