50 Years of
Medical Education
in Peoria

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.
