A Welcome Letter from our Program Director

Let me start by congratulating you and your family. What an incredible achievement! I hope you will all pause to reflect on the tremendous contributions you have made through all of your hard work and know that the future of medicine is better because you are all a part of it.

The anesthesiology residency program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP), in affiliation with OSF St. Francis Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited four-year post-graduate training program. Our goals are to provide our residents with superior training that will enable them to offer top-notch, professional, evidence-based care to their patients.

The program not only nurtures academic growth but also teaches residents on principles of communication, professionalism, patient safety, and empathy to help them become well-rounded physicians.

The basic and clinical lecture series, clinical conferences, and other educational activities are structured to strike a balance between theoretic and practical knowledge. We aim to provide our residents with a wealth of clinical anesthesiology and its subspecialties, solidifying their foundation to being successful upon graduation.

You will be surrounded by outstanding faculty with exceptional clinical skills and a strong commitment to resident education. Our faculty are always available to provide residents with mentorship and guide them as needed through their residency at this institution. We are proud of the diversity of our patient and provider population and the complexity of cases.

We warmly welcome you to our institution and sincerely appreciate your interest in our program.

Best wishes,
