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.

Today 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.

UICOMP faculty, staff and learners lead efforts and collaborate with local organizations to serve the community in a multitude of ways, from hosting and working a community garden for the underserved, to leading supply drives for local shelters, to teaching grade school students about the dangers of tobacco use. Our learners spend countless hours contributing to health and wellness initiatives to educate and support our communities and citizens.
